Description (partial)

Documentation shows in the table for "SNMP v3 User Settings" allows use of Special characters: !"#$%&'()*+,-./ :;<=>?@ [\]^_` {|}~

During testing, I found that some are not allowed to be configured in OAMP, and others that can be configured is not authenticated.

These example characters fail to be configured in OAMP    %  ' , ; = >
CVP throws an error "You must choose an Authentication password that meets security requirements."

Others such as minus sign "-" and colon ":" can be configured in OAMP but throws error in SNMPD.log

snmpdm: Can't make 'Htts531wc1sc-' into an OctetString
                              at line 88 in file ct_os.c

Htts531wc1sc: is turned into Htts531wc1sc because ":" is convered into whitespace in SNMP code
