Can I use special characters such as ! and @ when specifying a pre-shared key for a PIX and ASA?

Thanks

No, you cannot use special characters !

Specifies the authentication pre-shared key. Use any combination of alphanumeric characters up to 128 bytes. This pre-shared key must be identical at both peers.

Re: pre-shared-key characters??

I recently used the @ character in a L2L tunnel between a ASA with software 7.2(1) and a 2611XM with software version 12.4, so it is definitly possible to use other characters than alphanumeric characters.

Please rate if the posts helps!

I have this error on a SA520.

Empty space, ' and " characters are not supported for this field.

is there a way around it or do i just have to take it out from the key?

the key has ' and " in it.

Yes, ASA supports special characters in pre-shared-key except '?' for obvious reasons. Hope this helps.
