Lightbulb password protected FlashFXP and F12


When using F12 to open a new instance of FlashFXP it first prompts about an invalid password and then asks again for the password - which isn't to bad but the first "Invalid password" shouldn't be there I think.

What is worse I think is that the last part of my password (has spaces in it) is used in the new instance to connect to. So as example my password is "FlashFXP is the best!" -- then the new opened instance of FlashFXP with F12 will try to connect to 'best!' -- this I think is quite serious.

I'm using v2.0 RC2 build 862 on Windows 2000 Pro, with all possible patches

Output, with XXXX the last part of the password :

FlashFXP v2.0 Release Candidate 2 (Debug Version)
Online Support Forums http://forum.flashfxp.com

WinSock 2.0
Connecting to XXXXX
Unable to resolve host: XXXXX
Delaying for 120 seconds before reconnect attempt #1

Hope this can be simulated localy at your side.

Please do not publically display your FlashFXP ID, This number should be kept private.

it would appear that the command line doesn't support spaces. We may have to change the format a bit to allow for spaces.

Default ok

well i think it's making the feature a lot more secure when spaces and other (special) characters are allowed in the password...

a solution might be quoting the password in the command line? although I'm not sure what you mean with the command line...

sorry bout the ID... I guess I can edit/remove the original message (which already happened :-))...
