Thank you for the time used in reply. The response really did help me. I'm starting to get "a feel" for the Yubi key now.
I have three of them just for personal use.
I have programmed two to open my desktop, and some other devices I use. I have to keep the password backed up on
Drop box and other locations, however it works for me. However each Yubi key has a "unique" static password and
I have not been able to configure them both to have the same static password.
I have not yet been able to program the same static key on two or more Yubi keys.
Can this be done in any mode? I suspect not, at this time.
The second choice of using the scan code mode with only alphanumeric characters sounds like it should work however
I didn't get it to on the first try. Then again, the device does not remember much except the formula to generate the
same password every time for static mode. I has not remembered the key but regenerates it each time (from what I understand)
from reading things here and there.
This yubico device is becoming more useful to me. Thanks for the help. I think it is really important to keep the "static key" backed up
on another device than the one you use it to log into. Or else it would be easy to become locked out. I have it backed up on Drop box
and another regular usb memory device. I now use the yubi key to log into my desktop,
Again thank you for the reply above to my question previously.
