|Target Version||future||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0000411: OpenVPN fails authentication with password containing "$$"|
|Description||Not sure if this is in the OpenVPN client, the OpenVPN server, or the web interface of Endian Firewall.|
I have an Endian Firewall Community release 2.1.2 set up as an OpenVPN server. Using the web interface of the firewall, I create a user "test" with password "test$". I am able to succesfully connect remotely via OpenVPN GUI 1.0.3.
If I change the password to "test$$", I get an AUTH_FAILED message when trying to connect via OpenVPN GUI 1.0.3.
I think the two dollar signs ($$) might be some sort of special character, or perhaps they are getting escaped. There might be other special characters that do not work, but I haven't experimented.
The workaround is not to use "$$" in the password.
|Additional Information||Here is the OpenVPN log from my client:|

yes, $ identifies a variable name in perl, so the GUI writes down the password wrongly. there are more special characters which will not work, like @, %
I think there is also another issue with openvpn itself with special characters.
In 2.2 we disallow these characters. It's a temporary solution..
