    Quick question - what is the maximum number of characters a user account / login can have under 2K/NT

    It appears to be 20 - is there anyway of exceeding this length

    Thanks

    Yes thats right, 20 for username and 128 for password.

    And i doubt there would be any way around. Sorry.
