Hi, we are currently evaluating the iOS lib, focussing on using FTP.
Using the iOS lib in Xcode for FTP, the code connects, but the passwords are always rejected by the servers (tried 2 servers). Works from console of course (Shell> ftp cmd).
Initialising: alloc,init,UnlockComponent on CkoFtp2. Did try using passive, tls and the other options. Setting password, host and username as NSString.
I am pretty unsure how to get this done and what the problem is.
(made the universal libchilkatIos.a - as show in the docs.)
Really hope you can give me a helping hand, thx for any advice.

I think it very unlikely that the password string is passed incorrectly. If it were, then the FTP2 component would be essentially unusable and Chilkat would certainly hear about it.
The only thing I can think of is if the password contains non-usascii chars. Then the question would arise -- what byte representation (character encoding) is to be used for these chars? For example, if an accented European vowel is in the password, the ANSI byte representation would be a single byte, but utf-8 would be 2 bytes. Maybe this is the problem?
Other sanity checks you might do: Are you connecting to the same FTP server? Is the username exactly the same? Does the username have non-usascii chars?

Ok thanks. The paragraph § letter can not be transmitted correctly as part of the password.
