supporting to chinese is too bad

I'm from china, i like xshell, because the multi_document interface, and the power function of the software, but it did not support the chinese, if you use the neterm, you will find netterm suppport chinese well, hope you refer the netrerm software, and increase the xshell.
question: when inputting chinese words(use vi) display mass code, after press (ctrl+l) the display is ok.

Re: supporting to chinese is too bad

Generally Simplified Chinese Windows system use zh_CN.GB2132 code but your Unix/Linux system's console's default code maybe is zh_CN.UTF-8 or others. Try "export LANG=zh_CN.GBK" or "export LANG=zh_CN.GB2312" to set your code env and try it again.

Re: Re: Re: supporting to chinese is too bad

Thank you for using Xshell.

This problem may occur when the encoding setting and font is not selected properly. To fix this:

1. Find out the LANG value of your terminal
$ echo $LANG

2. Depending on your LANG value, select an appropriate Xshell encoding such as Unicode-UTF-8, Chinese-Simplified, or Chinese-Traditional.
Note: To select an encoding type, click on the globe icon on the Xshell toolbar.

3. Select an appropriate font for your encoding type such as NSimSun or MingLiu.

If your problem persists, please send us the following information:

1. Name/version of UNIX and vi editor
2. LANG value
3. Screenshot of the problem.

Thank you for your cooperation.

thank you for your help.
good luck!

Re: Chinese works well for me!

I was using Xshell 2.0 and now 3.0 beta, but Chinese works ok for me.

Try playing with your server's LANG value and the encoding setting in Xshell to match each other.

Or, post how readers can duplicate the problem. Maybe someone can help you.
