Lost password

Post by K4WZV »

When you enter your 16 digit password into your hotspot for the tgif network. And then upate or switch networks and come back to TGIf your password is not retained. Reported to me and duplicated by many users.

Are you using the expert editor?

Can you elaborate in much more detail the individual steps you are performing?

OMG, are you serious. ok here its comes
Step 1. Apply power to my pi-star hotspot version 4.1.4 20210517
Step 2.After bootup in expert editer under MMDVM host under DMR network I put our 16 digit password In the password field
This is where passw0rd is the default on pi-star and legacy connections our network (tgif.network)
Step 3. I apply changes ( the hot spot connects as a secure connection on our network with our 16 digit password

I switch to a Brandmeister server and my info was retained from last connection and connect to a server no problem

I then switch back to our TGIF master server

The 16 digit password is not retained and it goes back to the default passw0rd

Pi-star should retain the entered password but it does not.

Yes, in order to reproduce the issue you need to follow the exact steps the user performs. Your explanation was vague which is why I asked for clarification.

So when you "switch" to a BM server, you are not using the expert editor, you are using the main configuration page and selecting a new master server.

Pi-star should retain the entered password but it does not.
The dashboard only stores the custom password for BM, in all other cases it returns to the default password. The storing of the BM custom password was a recent addition to solve a problem that arose, I'm not sure if Andy has any future plans to store custom passwords for other masters.

But it is working as it is programmed.

Well, I'm one of the *thousands* of Tgif users who has encountered this problem.

I'd like to hear it from *Andy*, rather than someone else making speculations of what he will or will not do.

The TGIF network has recently implemented a 16 digit secure password on our network. Currently, in order to enter that password, a user must go into the expert editor in Pi-Star under MMDVMHOST, since there is no password entry box present in the configuration basic editor for DMR Master as there is for Brandmeister. As a result, when a user switches DMR Master networks in the basic editor, the custom 16 digit password entered for TGIF is lost and replaced with the default one (passw0rd).

Can a password entry box be added under the configuration basic editor when TGIF is selected as a DMR Master server (and for other networks, since secure passwords seem to be the direction we're headed) so that users' custom password entries are retained as they are for Brandmeister?"

Thanks for your consideration

I had already contacted Andy 30 minutes ago and asked him for his plans to incorporate that feature, when he gets back to me I will reply.

I am not just someone making speculations, I have direct communication to the Pi-star team.

Haven't there been other posts to the gist that -- if one has made changes using the Expert page, one should no longer make any changes using the Basic page... The basic page does not save all custom settings but reverts them to defaults.
