We were provided a user id & password by their trading partner. The
password has a dollar sign ($). We are receiving an error message that the
password is invalid.

A single dollar sign in a password will denote the letters following the dollar sign as a variable. And the password will fail.
A work around is to add a second dollar sign. This will tell GoAnywhere
that it is not a variable.

For example:
If your password is T$est
Enter into GoAnywhere T$$est
