    I recently rebuilt one of my DTivos from a clean image and used the latest Zipper which installs TivoWebPlus 1.3.0. I set the TWP login and password in the tivoweb.cfg file.

    Here's my problem. From my local network, I can load twp just fine. But when I try to access twp from my work pc which has a vpn connection to my home, I get a login pop-up, but the login/password always fails. The thing is, I have two other DTivos (running 1.2.1 I think) and they allow access from my work pc just fine. So what's different with the security between 1.2 and 1.3?

    check for extra spaces or dos line endings in the config file

    I don't think it matters if there's a space after the '=', but I tried it without - still no luck. I use metapad for editing with unix formatting.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I was actually referring to trailing spaces... AFAIK, TWP1.3.x doesn't strip those

    I'm pretty sure I checked that, but I'll try again (currently I've removed the login and password to get access). This time I'll use joe to add them. Thanks again.

    That was the problem - a trailing space. D'oh! Thanks BTUx9 :D
