The Forum Secret Key or Shared Secret Key is used to link your bot to your forum account.
You can create your Secret Key via your User Control Panel -> Profile on our forums at http://forum.neatportal.com/ucp.php?i=173. Simply scroll to the bottom of the profile and click "Submit" to automatically generate the key. The key can be found and copied from that same page (up a bit from the Submit button).
Once you have your key, you can enter it in the bot in one of two ways:
- Click Global Settings then the Forum tab. You will see the box there to paste your key into.
If you use the Director, you can type -ssk Your-key-here at the bottom and restart your bots. It will automatically enter your key to each bot restarted with it.
At this time, the Secret Key is only used to link the bot to the forum account for use with CAPTCHA auto-solving. In the future the Secret Key may also be used to unlock special VIP-only features in the bot.
