xshell Printing Incorrect Characters

 
Login prompt looks like the below for an Atlas 800+ . Some other characters print incorrectly after logged in. It should look like the second. More square shaped when monospace but that's the gist of it. I use DEC-MCS encoding in PuTTY to work around this, is there an encoding option I can use that isn't a language change? I attached a screenshot if that helps.

Xshell:

lqLoginqqqqqqqqk
x x
mqqqqqqqqqqqqqqj

PuTTY:

┌─Login────────┐
│ │
└──────────────┘

Thanks!

This is because encoding mismatches.
Try again changing terminal encoding at tool bar into UTF-8

Encoding is already UTF-8, it's an old device I'm trying to connect to, UTF-8 doesn't work on PuTTY either.
