  • Passwords with extended characters

    I have a question:
    I am fairly new to mysql. I created several users and tried to use an extended character in a password: güst. When I logged off and back on as the user, I could not input the 'ü'. Any ideas of what else I can look at ?
    Thanks,
    Brad

    This is what I got. When I use the alt-129 to enter the 'ü', it did not process it.

    C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin>mysql -u andrew -p
    Enter password: ***
    ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'andrew'@'localhost' (using password:
    YES)

    C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin>

    I've found some old bug:

    Investigation results from bug:
    >Most probably a charset is set incorrectly or windows terminal
    >garbles the input
