LDAP Login failing if £ symbol present in password

I am trying to connect to LDAP from my Java Application. It is working fine until now. But the customer has reported an issue saying he gets an error while logging into the application if "£" Symbol is present in the password.

I am able to replicate the issue locally. When the password field has the "£" Symbol then the LDAPException is thrown and the log file shows the below error:

"LDAP error 49 - AcceptSecurityContext error, data 52e -

I am using the ldapjdk.jar file in my application. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
Nitin Avula.

Hi Nitin, do you see this problem only in your JAVA Application, or it also occurs in Atlassian products? What relation your application has with Atlassian products, do you have any kind of integration in place? In case yes, could you give us some more details?
