Fixed Issues

The issues that are addressed in Build 56.19.

AAA-TM

  • If you log on to the NetScaler Traffic Management (TM) virtual server using "401 Basic" authentication, you might observe authentication failures if your username or password contains special characters. This is because only UTF-8 characters below ASCII 128 (for example, A-Z, a-z, 0-9, and ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ + - = [ { ] } \ | ; : ' " / ? . > , < special characters) are allowed.
