GRIB files for OpenCPN

Good morning
When I use the GRIB plugin on OpenCPN it offers to bring grib files from Zygrib.
However, it asks for the Zygrib user name (which I have) and also for a CODE which I am supposed to get from the Zygrib forum.
Can anyone advise me how to do that?

Hola Mark,

on the website ... &mode=form in the upper right hand corner you put your Login (forum) name and password into the code generator and press ok. A captcha with your code for the next two month is then displayed. Put that code into your email to or use it with the opencpn grib plugin.

works a charm!

thanks to the zygrib admin for this fantastic service!!!

Same error here too:

login: jspokes
error: identification failed

Can't get the code necessary to download.

Any chance this can be resolved or am I doing something wrong?! (Password is defiantly correct as I can login here!)

Thanks, Jon
