Hot Folder password maintenance can be done from the command line rather than by using the GUI. If a Hot Folder is authenticating to a Shares node and the password for the connection must be refreshed every 30 days, you can use the following command in a script to update the password:
> asperasync -P new_password -N hot_folder_name
The hot_folder_name is the text in the Name column of the Hot Folders tab.
