             Summary: pni_parse_url does not properly handle Base64 in URL
                 Key: PROTON-725
             Project: Qpid Proton
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: proton-c
    Affects Versions: 0.8
            Reporter: Adam Nemcek
            Priority: Minor

Our provisioning system provides us with a password in Base64 format, which can 
actually contain a slash character(s): '/'

This breaks the ability of {{pni_parse_url()}} to handle such URLs.

Example of URL string on which the parsing fails:


Instead of filling up the "user" and "password" variables, it puts the actual 
contents to "host" and "port". 

With the actual code it is a correct behavior - and *it is* also mentioned in 
the comment right in front of the pni_parse_url() function.
Yet I would need an update to the functionality, to handle the Base64 in 
password properly (anyone on Azure platform might run to this issue, soon or 

Note. I'm running the SVN rev 1633464 (latest trunk of 10/23/2014) version of 
ProtonC (C / Linux).

Thanks for looking at this.
