2 factor authentication under linux?
« on: April 07, 2019, 08:38:48 PM »
Has anyone coded routines to allow for 2 factor authentication to login to a pvxplus program?

If so, is that code available?


Thanks

Kurt

Have you considered using the *tools/sms;send routine to send the confirmation code via a text message when the user signs in?

All you need is a sms service account and the users phone number.

Mike,
Thanks for pointing this tool out.
SMS is so much more appropriate for critical issues after hours than email.
