#, $, and uppercase in passwords

By tkeys ·
Question is it possible to use #, $, and uppercase letters in novell passwords? We just recieved new machines running windows xp. These machines are images created by the district. It forces us to use passwords like the following: #houseCate$. We must use atleast one uppercase letter and two other characters. The other characters could be the same.
This would allow me to have one login on for the workstation and server.
Thanks.

Hmmm...I have a $ (actually $^) in my current eDir password via my XP client.

Check this Novell TID
Illegal Password Characters

Also - remember that Novell passwords are not case sensitive like Windows passwords are.

I tried this and found out something interesting. I have upper and lower case and special keys in my password. It does not care about the special keys nor the caps. If you type in the number under the key that will work too.
Now the rumor is that the next big version of Netware will not only have special keys/caps ability but also the ability to set a dictionary file to check the new passwords.
Take that you hackers out there.
