I just checked a password including the symbols *! and rancid logs in on a brocade fcx6610 switch.

Betreff: [rancid] Rancid Issues with symbols in passwords

Hi everyone,
My company has been using Rancid for many years and it has been working great.

It was recently brought to my attention that our Rancid fails when our passwords have symbols in them (for example !, $,*, etc). Does anyone know if this is limited to particular symbols? Or is it all of the symbols: !@#$%^&*

This is my first post so if I am missing anything, let me know.Thanks in advance!
