we use hsrp and ospf md5 authentication in a test environment.

Does anybody know which special characters are allowed in the key strings or where I can find any documentation about that?

I already checked cco and command lookup tool but I did not find any hint concerning this.

Best Regards,

Thorsten Steffen

I think only Alphanumeric password of up to 16 bytes can be used in OPSF MD5 Authentication Key.
