Can UNICODE or other non-ASCII code be passed through the LDAP properties file?


Relevant version: 10.0 and up

The properties file has to be in ASCII.  However, you can use the escape characters to pass Unicode.

In order to get the ASCII encoding you can use the native2ascii converter that comes with the JDK.  Note:  This does not come with the JRE that Symantec DLP ships. See
