Description Johann de Vries 2004-02-07 01:56:58 UTC
Hi! Our system has been set up with a linux 9.0 server and 32 win98 clients.
The other day a student of our school forgot his password and logged in with a
user name containing an Umlaut (e.g. Ödetal) just for fun.
The system denied access but let him proceed so that he had access to all
services in the net without a valid user name. Our control system NetOp school
could spot him.
This happens with every machine. A single ö or Ä with any password has the same
What has to be done to stop or reject German Umlaute?
Thanks a lot
Johann de Vries

Johann, I'm closing this as the umlaut handling has dramatically changed since 2.2 times. Please re-open this bug if it still exists with 3.0.22.
