I have been running Novell 5.1 sp 8 on my two servers. One runs
Bordermanager 3.7. the other server is my main file server.

For several years I have had no problems but today I tried to create give
an existing user rights to login via the vpn and this failed. So instead
I made a new user and gave him the same VPN rights as everyone else and
this worked. Then I created another new user and this person was not able
to login via vpn.

Is there a minimum size/format in the login name or password? I am at a
loss over why this should happne and would be pleased to receive any help
