Same Passkey on multiple machines, but with different Names?

Postby lewreview » Thu Apr 23, 2020 9:50 pm

I have several machines all connected to a small team. Each box has a unique user ID/name so I can see how much work each box is doing. Is it possible (recommended?) to use the same Passkey on each? If so, will their stats be combined by just Passkey into one entity, or will each box continue to total up just its own work? Not too worried about duplicate name collision, but would like to be in the bonus category. I know I can get a passkey for each box, but don't really want to go to that effort. TIA.

Go right ahead and do that. Just be aware that each username/passkey pair entered int a folding client will need to do 10 WUs before being eligible for the Quick Return Bonus.
