Description (partial)

Authentication fails with FTP server when username has both a hyphen(-) and backslash(\) character.

1. You have an identity configured for native FTP, which bypasses authentication
2. There is an identity further down in the list, which enforces authentication for http/https traffic
3. A native FTP request is made via the WSA, such that it matches the identity specified in '1'
