Question x00-x7f Mirth Choke

I noticed that Mirth MLLP port channels choke when there is a
Non-English Special Characters that are not in the Standard ASCII Table

It doesn't do any good to put code to strip out the special characters, in the pre-processor, because mirth chokes at some place before the pre-processor is run.

Do the mirth programmers know anything about this yet?
Is there a setting that will fix this? Maybe changing the Encoding value?
(I tried a few and they didn't fix it.)

Try having the input at raw. Strip out the special characters. Then convert back to HL7.

It likely does have to do with the character encoding. It should match at both ends.

You probably have yours set to UTF-8 (also the linux default) if it's choking on anything higher than 0x7f.

The Windows default in the US is windows-1252 if you want to give that one a shot. It should at least process it, but you might end up with the wrong characters if that's not the right encoding.
