Peter, thanks for the tip using quotes around the apostrophe when using vassuser. I was pulling out my hair trying every other kind of escape before the apostrophe. quotes around it works perfectly.

i'd also like to know where in the rfc it forbids an apostrophe because i cannot find it.

it is simply not allowed to have ' in usernames.
have a look at the rfc's ..

I wonder what part of the RFC exactly you're referring to?!?

I couldn't find the rule that forbids 0x39 in username.

Could you elaborate?
