#1236 closed Bug report

Filezilla won't accept my password

Description

I have control characters in my password. Filezilla won't let me enter them. (It just 'thunks at me when I try.)

It should at least allow any control characters that don't do anything else.

What type of control characters?

I don't think I can fix this as the standard text controls don't process control characters.

comment:2 Changed 13 years ago by warnold

I have over the years used
A B I G L N P
none of which have any meaning in any context where I'm going to type them.
There should be some way to get it to work, but I don't know what options are available. (I've mever done any windows programming)

I know secureCRT handles this right (since I can login using it), but I don't know if they used a standard control.

I don't think I can add support for such characters. I would have to create my own controls. The effort required to implement this would be too big. And so far, no other users have reported that they were using control characters in passwords.
