The value of Logon-length must be positive, with an absolute maximum value (after removal of any TDP identifier and delimiting slash) of one of the following:

  • 32763, if Maximum-parcel is set to O
  • 65531, if Maximum-parcel is set to H. Note however, that the actual maximum value is based on the size of the longest logon string allowed, with that string encoded with the character set that uses the most number of bytes per character. Currently, the maximum value is 278 bytes.
