App-specific password problem

I have enabled two-step verification and can no longer use FileZilla.  Although I can generate an app-specific password, if I try to use this in FileZilla, it says "530 Username/password not accepted..."

Also I can't find anywhere in the web interface that lists all the app-specific passwords generated.

Hi Ben,

App-specific passwords are generated on the fly with the two-factor authentication.  When using it in FileZilla, make sure you take out all the spaces (paste it somewhere else).  I would recommend generating a new password when trying again.
