Hello

OK, but, we have problem with characters \ / when it used for auto provisioning password.
Is that a bug?

Regards

Hi,

The characters I mentioned are allowed in passwords to protect the phone.
If you have issues with some characters used in provisioning password, you have to check at the provision server end if they are allowed. Also check your SIP Provider if these characters allowed to be use.

Hope this will help.

I would never use any slashes as part of a password. Too many systems use that for file/directory/web path separation. Many systems will not even allow those as usable characters for user names OR passwords.

Just to add to this as complex1 mentioned many systems also use slashes or backslashes as escape characters, so I would second the suggestion to avoid them as potential sources of problems.
