LRT214 Dynamic DNS password length

Hello,


Does anyone know if there is restrictions on password length in the Dynamic DNS section of the LRT214 router? I am having problems in getting authorized and I thought of the possibility that a password longer than 15 characters could be the problem... I can only see 15 characters. Nothing is written about password length in the help section. I am only doing what I am told: Entering the password for my account, and it is quite long!

Having time while waiting for an answer I changed the password to a 15 character long one and it worked this time! If this proves that my assumptions are correct I wonder why the length is restricted?

Thanks for letting us know about the DDNS password length restriction. I didn't know there was one one that text field.

Thanks for your answer!

 

I am hoping for a change of this restriction even if a 15 character long password at a first glance isn't estimated as too short to be safe.
