FusionPBX does not like Special Characters in Passwords

FusionPBX does not like special characters in passwords and I wasted far too much time finding that out the hard way. To be fair I should have installed Wireshark and ran a capture but I wanted to be lazy.

Over the past two days I had been trying to register a Bulkvs trunk. I kept getting this message in the logs: Failed Registration with status Operation has no matching challenge [904]

Using Gemini or just regular google and searching for Freeswitch and fusionpbx led me to much of the same stuff and nothing was helpful. Eventually, I did find the answer in the fusionpbx forums.

WIth that out of the way I definitely will be taking screenshots on how to setup a Bulkvs SIP trunk. It wasn’t anything special after I fixed the password.
