Macbook screen name can't have any punctuation in it?

1 post in this topic

Hey, I was getting "server refused client with name XXX-xxx.local" on my macos client trying to connect to a windows server. I searched around a bit and found one person who had to remove a dash from their screen name to connect . Through a bit of trial and error I found that both the hyphen and the period were causing the problem. When I changed my screen name to just letters it worked. 

I'm on version 1.8.8 btw. Curious if you're aware of this and planning on fixing! There should at least be an obvious warning somewhere...

Otherwise, this software is awesome.
