Advanced Authentication Framework
AAF 5.5
Radius method


Unable to authenticate through AAF Radius server with " in password
User can't log in using username and password using the AAF radius method
Problem occurs when LDAP password contains a " (quotation mark) 


Bug report has been entered.

Workaround:  Change the LDAP password to not include a " (quotation mark)


The problem is in FreeRADIUS, which is used for the AAF Radius Server.  
We don't have a list, but it is possible that some other special characters my also not work.
