Web password compatibility

If a user created a password that contained the plus symbol (+) while running a web client in a previous version of SecureTransport, you must change the value of the Http.Password.Compatability.Mode server configuration parameter to on to allow passwords with the + symbol.

When set to on this parameter allows users who previously changed their password to a string containing the plus character through a web client to log in and change their password. This option affects only the web clients. Once the password is changed, the user can log in using any client or protocol.

If you have upgraded or performed a system import, and you did not already manually change the parameter, SecureTransport sets the value set to on to allow legacy users with a + symbol in the password to log on without an error.
