Set CYGWIN=codepage:utf8 to enable UTF-8 support.

...and set LC_CTYPE=C-UTF-8, otherwise multibyte/wide char aware application don't convert UTF-8 strings correctly from multibyte to wide char and vice versa.

It works, but again, only locally.

Is there a way to tell these variables to a cygwin service (i.e., rsyncd started with cygrunsrv?).

I tried to set them as a global variable (System -> Advanced -> Environment variables), started new console, restarted rsyncd service with cygrunsrv, but it doesn't have any effect on rsyncd service - files with UTF-8 characters still fail to transfer (file has vanished).

This time, I used rsync 3.0.0 binary on a Linux server, so it's not a problem with an old protocol etc.
