RADIUS v2 Sensor password character limit



The RADIUS v2 Sensor currently has a password limit of 6 characters. Is there any plans in the future to increase this limit to at least 10 and beyond?

The RADIUS v2 sensor supports more than 6 characters for the password. Where exactly could you find this restriction?

Best regards

In the RADIUS v2 documentation under the Radius Specific section for Password it says “Note: The password must not be longer than 6 characters.”

There should be no limitation for the password. Please try to connect using a password with more than 6 characters and see if it works.
