Hi, Eli --

It doesn't seem to matter how many spaces follow the
username or precede the password.  The following all
worked just fine for me:

netview.PROPERTY.eli : mypassword
netview.PROPERTY.eli       :        mypassword
netview.PROPERTY.eli    :  mypassword

The trick is carefully watching the spaces at
the end of the line. (I tested several variations 
on spacing a bit ago and accidently *did* manage to 
introduce a space after the password during one of my

<< Elizabeth,
Bingo!!!  You were right (in a way). My own "user : password" looked alright
(i.e. no extra blank) but it wouldn't pass the Log In screen. I then got rid
of  that line and went back to the original "netview : netview" user &
password. This one did have a blank or two at the end of the password. Once
removed, I managed to Log In. I am very grateful to you, as there was no way
for me to proceed without your help.

My other question is, how do I recreate a line with my own user & password?
Is the syntax sensitive to blanks which follow the user field? I guess not,
otherwise I have no idea how to manually type the user data and then the
password. Is the location of the colon important? Are the blanks before and
after the colon important? Can I just type the following line, or must I
count the number of blanks I insert:

netview.PROPERTY.eli : mypassword
