Special Characters in AD Password


We have a Cisco ASA 5505, running SV 8.4(3). We also use AnyConnect Client (V3.1.04072).

We have recently implmented a password change and noticed for the users that have used a £ sign in their password, they are receiving a login failed message. I have changed this to a ! sign instead and this has worked and they have logged in.

I have created a test account and used the £ sign and once again, login failed. Changed this to another ! sign and I logged in fine.

Could someone assist me in the Cisco Character Set for uysing AD Passwords?

(If some of this did not make sense, I appoligise in advanced, I am fairly new to the world of Cisco!)

Thank you,
