Never noticed there were sources available for the official Linux no-ip client, but there are: northfield_systems/noip2.c at master · sweetonmac/northfield_systems

Looks similar to what these do: Dynamic DNS through NO-IP: keeping your hosts current, and your NO-IP account happy. « The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of stuff

ext3 – How to tell the language encoding of a filename on Linux? – Server Fault

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/08

From ext3 – How to tell the language encoding of a filename on Linux? – Server Fault  [WayBack] I learned a few things:

  • filename encoding on Linux is undetermined – the file system just assumes a byte array of characters
  • FTP and SFTP suffer from this as well (SFTP is based on SSH which now prefers UTF-8 [WayBack])

A good default is UTF-8, but it’s never guaranteed.

Two tools can help to determine the encoding of a filename:

  • convmv [WayBack] converts filenames from one encoding to another
  • chardet (Python) The Universal Character Encoding Detector
