I figured that the posted username and password are not the literal ones

their connections.

I know that I, for one, would use a rather long password and if it is
encrypted at my end before sending would likely make it longer as far as
actual transmitted bytes are concerned.

Is it possible that password length would affect the ability to connect?

Are people effectively trying to connect and login in the same
communication attempt?
