    Not sure where it changes, but in 8.2.1c I am unable to do a configupload to my external SFTP server with my username formatted "domain\username".  It errors out saying "Special Character found in User Name".
    This works fine in 7.4.1d
    I will work through the upgrade chain tonight of 7.4.1d to 8.2.1c to see in what version of FOS this breaks.
    **Upgrade from 7.4.1d to 8.0.2f introduced the special character issue with usernames**

    Is there any work around that people know if to allow special characters in usernames?

    (I also tried escaping the backslash and that also fails)

    Left is 7.4.1.d

    Right is 8.2.1c
