with or without pass, this is the question

Postby cip650 » Wed Apr 07, 2021 11:43 am

Hi guys, my servers have always worked without a password. It seemed to me that it is better to add it.
It's possible to add the points obtained without a password in the new protected account?
Grazie 1000 :) - Marco

I think you might be talking about a Passkey, not a Password.

The passkey is an identifier that uniquely identifies you points bucket. Your Name and/or your Team is not unique.

The passkey is also a requirement to earn bonus points.

A password is used to protect the client's files from unexpected connections on your LAN.

EAch passkey, if you have multiple, and no passkey Will be separate on F@H stats, but all be lumped together on EOC stats

We recommend using a single passkey for your client(s). When you change them or your User Name, it will disrupt your points history.

Beyond making your identification unique, it is also a better way to "benchmark" the performance of your hardware. The vast majority of people giving you comparisons will be using the passkey and QRB, and thus a better indication of how quickly the hardware is churning out work units.
