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):
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.
Are there any news regarding this?
