I was only using Wireshark and Drag & Drop (from the computer to the FTP site, nothing to do with ICS at this point) to see if it shed any light on what was being sent to the FTP server. When I view the file from the equivalent of Windows Explorer after the Drag & Drop, the filename is displayed correctly.
This tells me that somehow I can put a file (with a Russian filename) on to the FTP server and have it display correctly. So what I need to know is how do I do the same thing with ICS and PutAsync? I have a Unicode filename and can convert it to UTF-8 if required. Sorry for any confusion.

The standard FTP component only supports Unicode with Delphi 2009 and later, or if you use the OverbyteIcsFtpCliW version from my web site with Delphi 7 and 2007. > If I drag & Drop the file there is no problem. > this option is not supported using Drag & Drop) No idea what drag and drop has to do with any of this, or why you contradict yourself. ICS components are non-visual and do not support drag and drop. > OPTS UTF-8 ON (not sure how to use this Some FTP server support Unicode, many do not. Some (FileZilla) default to UTF8 ON (no hyphen), most need the OPTS command to be sent specifically to change from 8-bit ASCII to Unicode. There is discussion about Unicode and different FTP servers at: http://www.magsys.co.uk/delphi/magxfer.asp This (simplified) code comes from the TMagFtp high level FTP component on that page that hides all this stuff from the developer: if (ftpFeatUtf8 in FSupportedExtensions) then begin if (magftpNoUtf8 in fMagFtpOpts) then begin CodePage := CP_ACP; NewOpts := 'UTF8 OFF' ; end else begin CodePage := CP_UTF8 ; NewOpts := 'UTF8 ON' ; end; Opts ; end ; > Wireshark seems to report The only use Wireshark has here is looking to see if the FTP component is actually sending UTF8 charaters or 8-bit ASCII.
