What kind is the server? How does Mac OS X treat its file name encoding?
iconv -l will show the encodings it supports.
Assuming that the server is MS Losedows the from value (-f) might be
A test would be to create when logged in to that server a file with
the name ä-ö-ü-ß.ÜÖÄ or such in a freshly created directory and then
on the Mac visit the mounted file system, cd into that almost empty
directory and see with ls -wl how this name is spelled. If it's
spelled correctly the iconv part might be unnecessary. If not, you
can test with
ls -1w | iconv -f CP1250 -t MacRoman
and other from values which converts the name correctly.
ls -1 only shows one column containing the directory or file names.
ls -w makes ls output 8 and more bits characters just as they are
without any 'interpretation,' that's the proper way to list the
contents of a directory in Mac OS X that has some 'exotic' names. ls
-1w makes the names appear correctly 'spelled' in one column.
