Jabber Windows softphone registration fails with German characters in the password



Jabber Windows 10.5.0 does not register with CUCM as a Softphone if the end user password has any of these German characters - ü, ä, ö. This problem can be seen after upgrading to 10.5 from any 9.7(x) or with a fresh installation.


Components Used:-


Jabber Windows 10.5.0

Windows 7 64-Bit

Cisco Unified Communications Manager -




Problem Report will log these events:


2014-09-19 14:35:37,018 INFO  [0x00000fe0] [netutils\src\http\CurlHttpUtils.cpp(708)] [csf.httpclient] [http::CurlHttpUtils::configureEasyRequest] - *-----* Making HTTP request to:


But the response is a 401 Unauthorized:

 If the above URL is typed in a browser, we get a prompt to enter the credentials. Upon entering the same credentials, the proper output can be seen as an XML that contains the device list.


Next stage is the authentication failure that leads to this issue:
