Cisco Works 2000 & Proper SNMP Community Strings

I have been told Cisco Works 2000 does not accept SNMP Community Strings with special characters such as *, &, @, !. I can't find documents to support or disclaim this.

Is this true with anyone elses Cisco Works 2000 server when doing discoveries? Does anyone have a link to information regarding "valid community strings"?

Thanks so much!

All I have conjured up are various references to the following quote:

"special UNICODE characters above the ASCII range cannot be used".

Hi,

the documentation declares "any printable character" can be used but I've personally noticed a problem with tilda (~) character.

Regards,

It's my understand that it depends on the snmp version being used 3, 4, 5....

In earlier versions most characters will not be recognized but more recent version more are recognized. I have tested via snmp3 which can not recognize devices with strings including the characters I mentioned above. I did not test the tilda (~) though. Thanks for the responses!
