Separate Password for PWS and Webcam on WU
« on: June 03, 2020, 02:45:33 pm »
I can't get my usb Webcam to connect to WU. Running OS X el Capitan and WeatherCat 2.4.3. WU tells me that I must have a separate password for the web cam and the pWS. There is only one place to enter a password in weathercat. The camera was working but has stopped. Weathercat log is as follows:
 9:29:26 AM 03-Jun-2020:  FTP: Uploading image.jpg.

Hoiw do I get the camera on line at WU.

Many folks here have reported problems with WU and passwords. I think the general consensus is to change the WU password to something as simple as possible; mainly one with letters and numbers but no punctuation or other types of characters. Just be sure it has 15 or more characters and no real (dictionary) words. That's probably the easiest step to try. :)

Be sure to save any changes are made to your password manager, of course. ThU32:-)
