    Smoothwall Password Length

    We've been having a few issues with password length since starting to use SSL login with Smoothwall, if a student has a password longer than 15 characters login fails without explanation. We have to change their password to one of less than 15 characters, this is a bit of a pain as some of our students use passphrases.

    Any other Smoothwall users seeing this?

    It must be an issue with squid as it happens with Censornet as well.

    SSL login shouldn't have a lot to do with squid. I'll have it looked into as soon as I get a moment!

    Support: If you are reading this, Dan & I have just had a look - bug 1085 - its fixed, just working out when we can release it Should be an easy adjustment to mr. monster's system though, apparently there's sufficient detail attached to bugzilla.

    cookie: thanks for giving us a prod on this one, this bug seems to have been queued for release for a little while. Let support know who you are and I am sure they'll deal with it for you.

  5. Thanks to tom_newton from:
