Almost everything parsed by Config::IniFiles is affected by this. not only radius dyn-auth.

From what I recall SNMP communities, telnet usernames or passwords are also affected...

This lasted long enough! You time is over nasty bug! I'm coming at you!

I just re-checked the CoA code and I don't see why these would cause failures. They are never interpolated.

Did you confirm that the conf/switches.conf file had the proper stuff in it? Because before we were bad at saving $,@,... from the web admin but that was fixed lately. Editing conf/switches.conf by hand always worked.

If you did validate that conf/switches.conf was correct, it could well be a library issue unfortunately... We use Net::Radius::Packet we should probably check its changelog from time to time (or maybe even report the bug).

Deauth worked fine with - @ or $.

The issue might have been something else then. Marked as resolved.
