I use this instead. It has file transfer, chat and supports copy/paste.

Actually, here it is a SMS if using a new device. I had one SMS when I first used the app password, basically asking if it was me logging in.


confirm this is my case as well. Received a phone SMS only once on my phone number at the registration moment to confirm the user identity, after that I could simply login by SM mail everytime with the application password (needless to digit, it is stored) , nothing else.

So the whole action is for google to receive your current phone number (SMS). Where is the so called 'security improvement' if afterwards you log in via simple password then before?

Well, if someone acquires your Google password, they can't download all your mail without your phone number. Not much of an improvement but still an improvement.
Using OAth 2.0 gives about the same level of security. A lot of it seems like security theatre, "hey we're doing something about making things more secure"

Testing Dooble with https://meet.google.com I wonder why the Windows version access to meet without problem, while the OS/2 version asks me to download Chrome, Firefox or Edge.
I was expecting the OS/2 version to show me some errors at least.

I'm assuming it's user-agent related...

Utilities / PMVNC & Copy/Paste

Hi All,

Does anyone know a way to enable copy/paste from a VNC client to  an OS/2 host running PMVNC?

Or is this not supported with our host?

As mentioned in another thread, I bought a Thinkcentre M73p to run ArcaOS natively, but ideally I want to be able to VNC in to that computer to compile stuff from my laptop running Ubuntu.

Lack of copy/paste from the Host OS is a PITA:/

Cheers,

Paul

Andi!

...but that's a massive oversimplification of what's going on: if it wasn't for the shortcomings of our platform you would most likely want a two-factor authentication solution!

Since we are unable to use it, we need the kind of functionality app-passwords provide and so how can you 'blame' Google for the lack of security there? Heck...they are doing us all a huge favour by continuing to accept the existence of this security hole!!!

Hi Roderick,

Dmitry is currently still traveling. He is now working to get settle within the EU. I visited him in Turkey about 1 month ago.
So for now the work on the browser is kind of on halt.

I figured that, hence why I built the newer Dooble...

Cheers,

Hi Mike,

The "Del"-Button ist still not working  :(.

I'm almost certain this is a Qt5 bug.... Not a Dooble bug per se.

Cheers,

Paul
