I use filezilla to host file server. As explain article:

for multilang environment need use UTF-8.

How can I force Cygwin ftp client use UTF-8?

ftp>  ls
200 Port command successful
150 Opening data channel for directory list.
drwxr-xr-x 1 ftp ftp 0 Oct 16 2009 music
drwxr-xr-x 1 ftp ftp 0 Sep 11 2009 pub
drwxr-xr-x 1 ftp ftp 0 Apr 06 09:28 VERSUS. ÐÒÐÐÐÑÐÐÐâ ÐÂÐÂÐÂ
-r--r--r-- 1 ftp ftp 9994240 Apr 05 13:15 ÐÒÐÐÐÂÐÐÐÐ.

I read
Standard say that server can report UTF-8 support by FEAT command but
Cygwin ftp client dont understand it:

ftp>  rhelp feat
214 Command FEAT is supported by FileZilla Server
ftp>  feat
?Invalid command
ftp>  help feat
?Invalid help command feat

rfc2640 dated by 1999, so long time left.
There is no such thing (AFAIK) as "Cygwin ftp client." You are most likely
running the Windows FTP client from WINDOWS/SYSTEM32 directory. Install
lftp or other FTP client using setup.exe.
No I am running ftp from Cygwin distro:

Cygwin use inetutils to provide ftp client:

bash#  which ftp

bash# ftp --version
ftp (GNU inetutils) 1.5

Latest version from - 1.7

I grab inetutils-1.7.tar.gz and grep sources for FEAT keyword.
No thing found.

I also install lftp and ncftp. With ncftp I have same truble.
lftp understand UTF-8 but FEAT command not available.

So I can use lftp for my purpose.

Note that this client written by
one whose native Russian speaker, so I think author understand
problem with multilang environment in contrast to developers
from English countries which nothing hear about non ASCII. ARGH!!!
