IDN Support

Post by stalwart » Tue Oct 26, 2021 2:58 am

Hello,

I hope there is support for IDNs (International Domain Names, with German, French, etc characters) soon. At the moment, if one is used, it will simply say the host cannot be found.

The IDN-Punycode representation should be handled transparently.

For whatever reason, right now when you enter in a IDN as a server address, it will just say the host cannot be found. So it's doesn't seem to be handling it transparently. (The IDN is pingable and otherwise functional as well.)
