Hi, When I connect to the console of the instance via the GUI, I cannot enter the special characters of the password - password is "cirros:)". I realized it only after logging in via SSH into the instance and then changing the password. Tried multiple key combination (Ctrl, Alt, Shift), but I can never get ":" into the VNC console. Also tried to restart nova-*vnc services, but no use. Running latest stable version from devstack.

Appreciate any inputs/suggestion to fix it. Thanks.

Tried with all browsers. Tried installing devstack on 2 different machines. But the same behavior. Is there any log file that I can review?

I ran into the same problem. However I noticed it's just some special chars, in my case ? : " { } | _ and +. Other char like < > and all over numbers (e.g. ! ( ) ) work fine in my console. I'm using devstack and tried to access controller with different browsers and VM(Ubuntu/Firefox, Win/Chrome).
