ASA more than 15 characters password

Hi,

I am using ASA version 7.2 . Using AAA for authentication.

When using complex passphrases password more than 15 characters. The password is not accepted on VPN client and gives error "Connection terminated by peer Reason 433: Reason not specified by peer".

Any clue?

Regards,

Walid Mahdy

Hi Walid,

Are you using local ASA database for authentication?

If yes, the maximum is only 16 characters.

Here is the URL for your reference:

Hope that helps.

Hi Halijenn,

Thanks for your reply,

Actually, I am not using local authentication, I am using AAA server for clients authentication.

And it is working fine up to 15 characters.

Regards,

If you use the "test aaa-server" command to test the username/password, are you able to authenticate successfully with password more than 15 characters?

Also what version of ASA are you running?

I tried to do test aaa-authentication with 20 chr. But it gave me ...

ERROR: Authentication Server not responding: No error

I am using ASA version 7.2

Well, in that case, your AAA server maybe does not support more than 15 characters.
