Wifi WPA password with 31 characters only ?

Post by Elric »

Hi Support guys,

I want to test WTWare & raspberry with wifi so i wanted to enter my WPA password.

But my password has more than 31 characters and WPA password field is limited to 31 characters only.

Normally a WPA password should contain up to 63 characters right ?

Is it possible to add more than 31 characters in a way or another ?

Thanks for your help!

It's in fact easy to remember when you use a sentence as a password like for example :

"Ohmygod!MyTaylorisreallyveryrichindeed!"

Easy to remember and much longer than 31 characters :D .

Try wtware 5.4.70. Up to 63 chars passwords should work.

Hello again,

I've just started to test the new version and i can already see that wifi password is written in initrd.wtc file but is not encrypted...
I mean, all the others passwords (setup, vnc) are encrypted so i'm wondering : is it possible to crypt the wifi password ?

Thanks for your work !

Note it's the security mirage, not real security.
