Default Problem adding Users (umlaut-Domain)

it is not possible to add new users to a domain with umlauts (www.testö.com), the system says "username must have between 4 and 32 characters...).

tried it with username "office" on ispconfig 2.2.6 german.

I guess it won't be possible until ISPConfig handles IDN (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interna...d_Domain_Name).

E.g. there must be a conversion to PUNICODE (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punycode) cause the zonefiles won't contain any ö, etc. but their punicode encoded equivalent.

If you add the domain as punicode, it shall work.

If i remember correctly, umlauts are not allowed in linux system usernames at all.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
