Buffalo Tera: Generic passwords

My Buffalo Terastations NAS servers don't accept complex passwords. They don't seem to like special characters. This means my entire domain set of Active directory credentials will not work. That means I can't join the domain with it.

Any work around???

Can I give the terastation its own generic password and use complex AD to log onto the terestation, is there a software upgrade to buffalo products that permit complex passwords?? Should I use this as a trolling rig or anchor behind the ship?

Once again, thanks in advance for your help!!!

I don't know, am I missing something with the firewall? Buffalo Terastations are a Unix based NAS device that doesn't like the kerberos authentication because it doesn't like complex passwords with anything other than the 256 keypad and only special charactors like a hyphen and an underscore. So, my complex passwords to join the domain don't seem to be working. Let's take for instance a simple complex password of:

P@ssword1:

The @ sign is not an exceptable thing for the buffalo terastation. So, I can't join the domain with it. It's driving me crazy, because we have to comply with complex passwords and I am stuck with this NAS server that will not except them.
