2 Factor Authentication Username issue

Postby kenco8801 » Wed Apr 03, 2013 9:41 pm

I am trying to setup 2 factor authentication and have followed the Google Authenticator guides....

When I scan the barcode OR enter it manually I get the following error:
"The barcode 'blablabla@blablabla' is not a valid authentication token barcode"

From reading online, this may be an issue related to my username on my Synology having a space (forename surname).

I wonder if anyone else has encountered this or whether someone can confirm/deny whether this is the case.

Many thanks!
