Friday encrypts the password you enter in Settings so others can't learn it by reading the FRIDAY.FQA file. On some password/name combinations, the encryption scheme doesn't work properly; the name or password is incorrectly decrypted, so your password is rejected.

Here's how you can work around the problem. In the FRIDAY.FQA file, add the following line right after the line that reads [App]:


Friday will now ignore the stored password and ask for your user name and password when you upload.
It will use the user name and password to log into the FTP server but won't store the information.
