REST API Credentials Issue

In version 10.1.600.8 I came across an issue where if a user id has a hyphen in it or a password has a colon the REST call cannot be made.

Anyone else come across this problem?

What error are you getting?

Login failed StatusCodeError: 500 - {“HttpStatus”:500,“ReasonPhrase”:“REST Api Exception”,“ErrorMessage”:“Access denied (wrong header format).”,“ErrorType”:"System.ServiceModel.FaultException

Appreciate you posting this @tkoch - I was pulling my hair out trying to get these to work and it turns out I had a colon in my password. Changing my password to no longer have that character fixed me right up.
