    Description

      FULL STEPS:

      • Configure two Moodle servers as MNet peers
      • Create a user with non-latin or extended characters in any of the following Profile fields:
        • firstname
        • lastname
        • department
        • address
        • description
        • others?
      • Navigate to MNet peer

      WHAT I EXPECTED:

      Successful navigation between MNet peers

      WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS:

      Error message:
      Unknown error occurred during negotiation.More information about this error
      ×Debug info: 
      Error code: unknownerror

      ×Stack trace:

      We first noticed this problem several months ago with Cyrillic characters. Today we noticed it again with Romanian diacritics and Greek characters.
