    I can not seem to input non english characters, such as Å, Ä or Ö (swedish a and o characters), in the linux CLI sftp client. When I try to nothing is printed.

    ls cmd displays files and dirs with these characters just fine, but I can not type in the characters, so entering a dir (cd) or downloading (get) a dir/file with any non english character seems impossible.

    This issue does not exist during a standard ssh shell login, so the locale does not seem to be the problem. It seems to be within the sftp client itself.

    Anyone who has an idea?

    Can you please let me know how can I move files from one directory to another directory on SFTP server (mv equivalent)?
