Hi, I installed Freebsd 8.1-RC2 in my home server to be used mainly as a file server, it used to have Ubuntu 9.10-Server installed on it, then I backed up (.tar.gz) the /home directory, that contains many spanish accented files and subdirectories in UTF8.

Now, when I access this machine using ssh, some of those files include "??" and "\303" or similar characters instead of the correct accents.

What can I do to show the files in the correct way?.
