Just re-tried and now it works.
Dunno if something has been fixed since when I declared the bug ... maybe the upgrade to Python3.

Regarding the above issue, can you please test, if an authentication 
via the test tool works? 


1) Make sure the x2gobroker-authservice is running 

2) x2gobroker-testauth --user=<user> 

(Password is queried then after having hit <ENTER>. 

Does that work? Or does this also fail? (Here it works).
