I am using ASA version 7.2 . Using AAA for authentication.

When using complex passphrases password more than 15 characters. The password is not accepted on VPN client and gives error "Connection terminated by peer Reason 433: Reason not specified by peer".

Any clue?

Hi Halijenn,

Thanks for your reply,

Actually, I am not using local authentication, I am using AAA server for clients authentication.

And it is working fine up to 15 characters.

If you use the "test aaa-server" command to test the username/password, are you able to authenticate successfully with password more than 15 characters?

Also what version of ASA are you running?

I tried to do test aaa-authentication with 20 chr. But it gave me ...

ERROR: Authentication Server not responding: No error

I am using ASA version 7.2

Well, in that case, your AAA server maybe does not support more than 15 characters.
