Weird backslash character in NFS path names
 
I'm trying to connect to my NAS over NFS. All works perfectly on command line and almost perfectly on konqueror / dolphin file managers.

When I typing on konqueror
nfs://192.168.1.100/
it shows me exports directories as expected.

BUT ... all these directory paths contained WRONG BACKLASH character
mnt⁄ide1⁄archive
Please note, that "⁄" is not same as "/" and konqueror gives me
nfs://192.168.1.20/mnt⁄ide1⁄archive
The file or folder /mnt„ide1„archive does not exist.
How I can fix this ?

Strange.

I'm not being picky (because it may help you in your searches), but the character you refer to is a (wrong) FORWARD slash.

But I think the problem lies with the encoding or other setup on the server because it is telling your client the /paths/to/files and seems to be using the wrong character. Try looking on the server.

What is the Maker & Model of your NAS ? (So I don't buy one!)

Seems that problem regardless not caused by server. When connected from KDE 3.x (forward)slashes are accurate. This problem emerges only when using KDE 4.x

Link below gives the proof

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=184997

Also one thing is missing under KDE 4 (and what exists under KDE 3) that Konqueror doesnt have anymore special icons for NFS drives on Navigation Panel. I think that automount gives me what I need.
