ASA SSL Authentication special caracters

Unanswered Question
Nov 7th, 2008


I have a ASA 5540 configured in WebVPN to authenticate users through an ACS server. The ACS server can use my Active Directory Users Database.

a user with those credentials:

login : testuser

pass : céli20

can login through Remote Access VPN (classic cisco ipsec vpn client)

but can't throught webvpn portal page..!!If we change the password and remove the "é" it can log-in...How to allow specials characters in the webvpn session connection?

I have this problem too.

ASDM does not support any non-English characters or any other special characters. If you enter non-English characters in any text entry field, they become unrecognizable when you submit the entry, and you cannot delete or edit them.

If you are using a non-English keyboard or usually type in language other than English, be careful not to enter non-English characters accidentally. For a workaround, see caveat CSCeh39437

Hi, thanks for your answer,

But I am not introducing non-english characters in ASDM, I'm trying to log in the SSL WebVPN Portal Page, that's all...
