Bug ID: 344413
Summary: DAV resource sends password encoded as Latin1
Platform: Debian unstable
Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
Reporter: shane at duairc.com
I've been trying to configure a DAV resource with Kontact that connects to an
ownCloud server without success.
I figured out from inspecting the logs on the server that the password (which
contains non-ASCII characters) is being transmitted encoded as Latin1, while
the server expects UTF-8.
For what it's worth, Kmail works fine with the same password.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a CardDAV or CalDAV account on a server that uses a password with
2. Try to add this account in Kontact/KAddressBook
The CardDAV/CalDAV resource will fail to authenticate with the server, even
though the password is correct, because of character encoding issues.
The CardDAV/CalDAV resource authenticates correctly.
