I deploy to localhost, i.e., to the same server where I ran my C/S application that works fine. But after your message, I checked system time on my server and it is exactly the same as on my IPhone. Moreover, I ran the modified generatepin() function triple:

Pin1 = generatepin ( key, CurrentInterval - 1)
Pin2 = generatepin ( key, CurrentInterval )
Pin3 = generatepin ( key, CurrentInterval + 1)

for previous, current and next 30 seconds but none of the Pins matched with the token on my IPhone.

Thank you very much for your help!

I will let you know if find a solution,

George

Verify that the time and timezone are correct on the server you're deploying to. If it's off by more than 30 seconds, you likely won't get the correct PIN values because they use the current UTC unix epoch time as part of the calculation. Part of the powerscript code is calculating that value based on the date/time/timezone of the machine the code is running on.

Bruce,
I created both these functions and call them in generatepin(key, counter) function instead of longtobytearray() and counterBlob():

//Convert the counter to byte array and then to blob

of_copylongtobytes( counter, counterBytes )
counterBlob = of_blob( counterBytes )
//longtobytearray ( counter, counterBytes )
//counterBlob = Blob ( counterBytes )

After this generatepin() began return 6-digits pin instead of '000000' but each time these 6 digits are the same and doesn't match digits in DioMobile on my IPhone, At the same, hashBytes array is popuilated with 20 elements.

In C/S application with longtobytearray() and counterBlob() functions everything worked fine. By the way, I have the latest PowerServer 2020.

I would be very appreciated for any ideas,

George

Read the comments by Rob Stevens on the comment thread on the blog article. There are workarounds for the CopyLongToBytes and Blob functions that don't work the same in web PowerServer.

Dear Bruce,

Thank you for your great job! I used your twofactorauth.pbl and its objects work without any problems in C/S version of my application. However, when I deployed it as web application, your u_google_authenticator.generatepin() function began to return '000000' instead of real pin.

Is this a problem that can be fixed or your PBL cannot work in web applications?

Best regards,

George Mikhailovsky

>>Regarding two-factor authentication with Google, could you explain which Google web APIs to call to connect to a Google account?

Two factor authentication doesn't use any Google account apis. The only google api call I make at all is to a charting api to generate the QR code.

>>can you implement this when you want to send emails from powerbuilder using google with smtp? Thanks a lot.

This has nothing to do with Google mail. If you're looking for code to send Google email from PowerBuilder I suggest you look at this code sample which does it through .Net called from PowerBuilder ( community.appeon.com/index.php/codeexcha...56-net-importer-demo ) or the PBNISMTP utility, which does it through PBNI ( github.com/bruce-armstrong/pbnismtp )
