Ha, ha, ha, ha <cough>. 4282 is wrong. And no one implements any of it.
The MS-CHAP RFCs are silent on the subject of character encoding. The
unofficial word from Microsoft is "MS-CHAP uses the local encoding".
Ok... what's that?
<hysterical laughter> No one knows. And there's no way to find out.
And UTF-8 uses up to 5 octets for a character. MS-CHAP requires no
more than 2.
There is *no* way to do the right thing. You can get close.
Sometimes. Maybe. But doing the right thing always? Impossible.
