Radius and special signs/letter in password.

  • Updated 4 years ago
Here in Denmark we are using some speciel letters, see below. Those letters is working fine as a password in AD, We have been testing it with a radius client against our AD and our special letters is working as a password.
If we are using those letters on our wireless net with proxy - radius, we got a message from the radius server with unknown Password.
Our guess is that Aerohive can't handle this special letters. Of course we can tell our student not to use those letters, but they forget all the time :(

Any help  ?

Your issue does sound like a password hashing bug. Because of that, it would be best addressed via a support case and not here as it is likely that a code fix will be required. Alternatively though, you may want consider running a different RADIUS server such as NPS or FreeRADIUS. This would sidestep and avoid the issue.
