I have a file that contains an encrypted TrueCrypt volume, along with the password.

It is a few year old now, and I wish to decrypt it.

The problem is that I downloaded truecrypt on both osx and Ubuntu, and the input password prompt will stop accepting new characters after reaching a certain length (about 125 char). Now my password is much longer than that.

How can I decrypt this volume ? For instance, is there a CLI option ?

Yes there is a command line option in OSX. You can see the full list here. I can't answer your question directly (I can't seem to locate an actual spec on password length) so you'll need to try your long password with the CLI. Good luck!
