    You don't have USB stick, identity - nothing. You're on vacation 1600 miles away from your home, which was burnt to ashes an hour ago.
    Don't substitute the given conditions. You have what you have, everything else is outside your reach for whatever reason.

    Worst case TS2:
    You forgot your password. "You're on vacation 1600 miles away from your home." Your paper or hard drive with the password saved is lost.

    So mailing the TS3 identity or TS2 password in the solution in both cases. Set as many senseless condition you want. Driving to the vacation with the intention to administrate a TS3 server without saving the identity and put them on email account or USB stick is just stupid .

    And thereby making TS3 no more secure, in fact less secure. Having to carry hard copy of your credentials and writing them to disk of a computer you have to use is very insecure. It isn't just importing your credentials to another machine, it's reliably getting them erased when your done.

    This system has benefits if you always use the same computer and nobody else ever uses your computer. Step outside that model and it's less secure.

    It's better for an admin with a small group of users they can manage, like a rented clan server. Step outside that model and it's a headache to admin.

    A command line option to use standard username/password auth would be both simple and be flexible enough to accommodate most anyone. It doesn't need to be one or the other, both methods can easily exist in the same software allowing admins to use the method that best suits their situation.

    For me the best method would a be a username password pair, with the displayed nickname in the client being separate and locked to that username on that server and not user changeable.

    @ rifleman: Both systems have pro and cons. Many peoples use TS2 with very weak passwords, thats much more insecure than saving the identity on a USB drive (which needs to be stolen).

    It's not possible. I always make them easy to recall. And I don't write them down, as the general rule.

    This thread started out as a pool of problems that were associated with integrating TS3 with preexisting user bases. Some debating of possible solutions later we have people with success stories integrating user bases into TS3. I wrote a guide without the historical and irrelevant stuff for those of us interested how to do it today:
