I checked and it looks like everything is correct with the passkey...in the fahlog it says passkey found when it first started folding the unit. I'm not sure if that really means anything or not though.
One thing is I started using fah gpu tracker v2 over the weekend instead of the traditional client. I had been using since I started folding but I can't remember if that first 970 bigadv unit was from the gpu tracker or not. Even still I don't see any problems as the passkey is in the cpu tracker config as well as the config file for smp clients in the fah gpu tracker folder. I will give it one more try if I have more problems I will go back to the traditional console client. This is really a bummer though.
it's alright though, shouldnt be too big of a deal as long as it's working now... *fingers crossed
