GMX on FritzBox

I got a GMX VoIP account yesterday (1c per minute for all calls in Germany, or 10 EUR flat, excludes mobiles of course) and set up my FritzBox to use it. All I got was a message code 401 and the FritzBox would not be able to connect.

It took me a while to find out why: I had chosen a password with more than 8 characters, which is not checked by the setup page in GMX. They do have a message there saying that the password must have 6-8 characters, but it was easy to overlook.

Once I had changed my password to fit the limits it worked like a charm. Also the FAQ on GMX is pretty helpful for setting things up. Mind you, this particular problem was not on their list. Hope this may help some people out there.
