Problem Description

You have read https://bto.bluecoat.com/packetguide/current/reference/cli/setuppassword.htm regarding the "setup password" CLI command on the PacketShaper. Now you are trying to configure a"'look" or "touch" password containing special characters and are presented with an error message stating "illegal characters".

Resolution

This happens when you use language specific special characters like a "§", for example.

"all special characters", as mentioned in PacketGuide, actually means all special characters on a US keyboard. Special characters on non-US keyboards are not allowed and hence are classed as illegal characters.
