[SOLVED] Can we login to Gmail with TSNet or do we need OAuth?

Post by Lagi Pittas » Thu Apr 05, 2018 5:08 pm

Hi All,

Well the subject says it all.

I followed the tutorial here

http://lessons.livecode.com/m/4071/l/85 ... ap-account

And I get an

"Error connecting to server: tsneterr: (67) Login Denied"

What am I doing wrong - I am using the Business edition although indy edition gave the same error

Do I need to login using OAthe 2.0 and then use tsnet to do the clever bits? Do I need to somehow tell Gmail that I am a trusted program and if so how - Dropbox on the Iphone comes back and asks so I assume that is OAuth.

Regards Lagi

Did you set up your GMAIL account correct?
If not it will not work.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Paul

You will also need to enable "less secure apps" for your gmail account:
