Hi all,

I have to login to swat to setup my smb.conf file by accessing 
http://localhost:901. To access swat a login box pops up from firefox, or 
konqueror asking for my root password. 

My password contains some wierd & wonderfull characters. It is not accepted as 
valid by this authorisation box even though it works fine for adept or sudo 
in xterm. However swat does accept it if I change it to a simple character 

I suspect it has something to do with kongueror > fonts > default encodeing 
and tried utf8 but still no go.

Does anyone have any idea what i should change default encoding to ? or where 
else the problem may be ?



PS I have checked my keyboard & language settings via KDE controll center
