Description Timmothy Wilson 2015-09-16 10:24:22 UTC
According to https://forum.ipfire.org/viewtopic.php?p=89875, it seems that not all chars in passwords are parsed correctly.

(In HTTP URLs, a space is often encoded as %20, for example. The DDNS updater seems to do so as well, so authentication fails because of wrong passwords.)

At the moment, % and : are the only "problematic" chars I know.

Best regards,
