HSRP authentication question

Hello all, we all know that the default HSRP auth. is cisco in clear text. My question is this. Does the authentication have to be a word or can you use other characters or symbols? I haven't found any docs saying otherwise but does anyone know for sure?

Thanks in advance :-)

Re: HSRP authentication question

I have just tried in the lab the password of " c3* " and it worked. Can be up to 8 characters.

Hope it helps.

Steve
