Description Dan Mellem 2003-01-09 03:17:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
When initially configuring up2date, the program supports a proxy with
authentication. If the password contains a pound symbol the password is truncated.

Also, PAC support would be nice....

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Connect through proxy server (such as Squid) that requires authentication.
2.Use an account that has a # in the password (or username??)

Actual Results:  Should log in to proxy server with typed password.

Expected Results:  Attempts to log in with truncated password which then fails,
ultimately locking the account.

ugh, yeah. I can see that would break it. Bug in the config file parsing.

I'll take a look and see if I can fix it.
