Default Maximum length & non ASCII characters in passwords?

help.chm doesent mention anything about it, and search give me zero information...

is it possible to use non ASCII characters in passwords?
could it cause various problems? (inability to encrypt/decrypt data files? corrupt ftp.url or password? etc.?)

the maximum password length is? 50,60,120 characters ?

non printable ASCII characters will probably not work, if you can enter it into the password field most likely it will work.

I dont think it would cause any problems, but this hasn't been tested. I don't see any reason why it would cause problems since the password is encrypted and stored in a plain text method.

There is no defined limit, if the password is too long it probably will be trunicated though.
