PuTTY character encoding problem solving

Sometimes there is a problem with the characterencoding (hieroglyphs, incomprehensible characters and icons) when connected remotely. For example,when connecting via PuTTY from Windows to a server with a hosted Ubuntu. I lead a brief note on solving this problem.

Main OS: Windows XP

Remote OS: Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS

The problem is shown in the picture.

To solve the problem with encoding inPuTTY, you need to do the following.

1) Connect to a remote host and find out which locale is on the server (what encoding does the server operating system use)

root ubuntu: locale





2) As can be seen from the figure, UTF-8 encoding is used on the remote host. In this regard, you need to configure our PuTTY to use UTF-8 encoding. To do this, close the PuTTY session and start the client again and go to the Windows category Translation Remote character set and select the UTF-8 encoding.

3) In Window Appearance Font settings Change, you can also select the font and character set (“CharacterSet”).

4) Next, go to Session enter the IP of the remote host select the port (standard 22 for ssh) Enter the session name in the Saved Session field, so that later you can immediately connect with the necessary settings click Save connect, Click Open.

5) After connecting, try the samecommand to check the encoding.

6) As you can see, everything works. Similar settings can be applied in a similar way to connect to other Linux distributions.

Among the applications I always download when first setting up a new computer is FileZilla, the humble, open source FTP client. For those of us who have run our own little websites it’s been a longtime staple of the webmaster’s toolbox.
