Lately, we changed a P20 terminal and placed one of our V10L terminals for connecting to a Windows 7 Pro PC. Everything works fine, but when a user with an umlaut in the username tries to logon, the terminal say “Logon attempt failed”. (the letter “ö” is used in the username)
Tried it from a windows pc (terminal client) with the same user/password, there i got no problems.
User without any special characters in their usernames are able to logon.
I use the iso-8859-1 charset. At least in the text fields the umlauts are written correctly. Maybe the terminal sends them wrong to the pc?
My workaround so far is, that i created another user for that case (without umlauts, same password)
Yes, direct RDP to Win7 PC.
The interesting thing is, that the V10L pops up an additional logon Window in WTOS after “connect”. Might be because of the newer RDP version of Win7 / Server2008R2? On WinXP /2003 i came directly to the Windows Logon Screen.
Doesn’t matter so far, logins without umlauts are working with that logon screen as well. But as soon as i got umlauts in my username, the troubles begin.
We will bring back our P20 with firmware 3.30 (including RDP) back to life for that scenario – no umlaut problems with the P20.
