At the moment GMC Data viewer crashes if I try to send my long WiFi password to my GMC-500+. It's the maximum allowed for WiFi, namely 63 characters.

What is the limit in length for the WiFi password?
Is the limit on the GMC-500+ unit itself any longer?

I have it working on my guest network but I wanted to try it on my main network to try and track down a bug that ZLM seems to deny exists.

I'm sure a 20 character password is enough to connect to most WiFi networks and my 63 character password is ridiculously long but I think there is valid argument for saying that a bit more than 20 is required if you want the best security possible.
