Allow L2TP user passwords to contain special characters
In older versions of pfSense, special characters (@#$%^& etc) where allowed in passwords.
Since a while back this has not worked. When a user's password is entered, the form complains that there are invalid characters in the password.
There was a similar problem with other passwords, which has been corrected, so can we have this one fixed too?

- Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
- Subject changed from L2TP users passwords cannot contain special characters to Allow L2TP user passwords to contain special characters
- Priority changed from Normal to Low
- Target version changed from 2.3.4-p1 to 2.4.1
The validation for L2TP user account passwords is the same as it has been since pfSense 2.0 when it was first added. Some other MPD-based service like PPTP may have allowed special characters, but L2TP never has.
It can most likely be changed to work with them as an added feature, but it is not a bug.
