I have one of my computers

I have one of my computers set up to run Einstein@home through BOINC. When I tried to add the project to my other computers through Boinc stats I get the message "Incorrect Password".  It seems that the rules for password characters/length are different between BOINC and Einestein@home.  Neither seems to have a place where the password can be changed so they match.  Einstein@home has a more complex password requirement which is not a problem, but I'm woried that I will lose connection to other projects if I somehow change the BOINC basic password.

OK, I found my problem.  I get a warning message when I try to change passwords, but it does allow me to do so.

Correction:

Most BOINC Projects allow a MINIMUM of 8 somethings as a password, Kryptos requires a MINIMUM or 9 somethings as a password.
