i'm trying to download from ftp.amigascne.org the whole modland section. I noticed that files with special characters are not downloaded, so i thought it was a bug or a setting of filezilla. I found this http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Character_Set
Anybody has faced the same ? Any solution?
Thanks in advance!

On other ftp clients I didn't have this problem. I think filezilla is being rather strict and using 7 bit only if you don't specify a charset.
All very well being good and correct, but its not much help if it doesnt work that well with many well used ftp servers :/

o DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MIRROR THIS ARCHIVE WITHOUT PERMISSION. YOUR
HOST AND/OR NETWORK WILL BE BANNED AS A RESULT OF IGNORING THIS
so you might want to split your downloading up between a few other mirrors such as ftp://modland.ziphoid.com and my mirror (not all that fast but) ftp://aero.exotica.org.uk/pub/mirrors/modland/
