Hey can anyone get me a password for Directechs? They recently changed their site and I can no longer log in. I work for a shop, but it is going to take us a few days to get a new password, and I can't wait that long. Thanks!

You have no choice but to wait for your rep to get you a new password. No one in their right mind would give theirs up!  Is there a specific vehicle you need tech on?

They have changed website to eliminate unauthorized people accessing their data base for information. It is supposed to be only for dealers who purchase their products and password is given on an individual basis and if your boss fires you, your password gets deleted off their system.

Actually, the system is set on a IP address response system where you have to log in with a valid email address and password. When you do this the site authenticates your IP address to the one that is attached to your login information and if this changes you do not get in. Your boss/dealer will have to set up your account for you and this way there's no way you can give your log in information away unless your able to change your IP address along with the login information. This works on the same system that WireMagic uses.

BTW, this sucks when your have more than one computer system in your facility like we do. For each computer you have you need a different license key ( like Windows OS ).

I was just at a DEI seminar and the instructor said this website was new to the fact that each individual installer will get a separate log in versus the " one shop log in" that it used to have. This was only last month when I went to the meeting. You will have your email addy and a log in designated just to you so your accessing the data base can be monitored. So you are not getting info that isn't related to work, like if you do a side job and go to website. It will log when you visited, what info you requested.

They will be using IP authentication and will only have access from inside their store locations, not outside their buildings. Installers need to contact their corporate offices for assistance or to have their IP added to include their store.

^Thats a terrible idea. Its worse than credit card companies bc all you ahve to do is verify your info and able to log in. That whole update thingy will cause some trouble for some ppl, thats not even funny.
Can soemone tell me whats really updated on the directwire? I see pictures but I have seen those pictures in their database already previously. Did they use astrochart format/infos/pics?
