    There isn't really a "process". If you and your link decide to setup a packet password, and someone misspells it or uses caps when the other doesn't, it won't be processed by the receiving system. This usually marks the packet bad and leaves it for the sysop to take a look at and/or find the solution and fix it.

    As long as you and your link setup the packet password the same, there should be no issue.

    Regards,
    Nick

    Yep agreed, also check you're both using a password or you're both not using
    a password, as if one if and one isn't that can also cause probs ;)

    I didn't find a bad directory off hand. the mutil.log did say the pkt
    password was invalid, maybe changing the debug level says the directory its
    in.

    Hello Antonio,

    The main thing as I see it is to make sure that if both systems exchanging packets have agreed to use packet passwords that they of course use the same password. Also check beforehand to make sure that the software in use on either end doesn't use case sensitive passwords.
