Cp850 is the ONLY correct encoding when the server does not want Unicode
(at least on english systems). The Cp850 encoding just isn't supported
by all JREs. If you're going to set an alternateive encoding set "ASCII"
so that it there is a better chance of catching an error message when
non-ASCII characters are encountered.

Please post this to the said forum if possible.
