Encrypting with a railfence of 2 we get btttbtbbbbbbbtbtbbtttbttbtbtbbbtbbtbttbtbbtbttbttbtbtbbtbtttttbtbtbbtttbttbtbbbbx444x44xx4xx4x44xx44xx4x44x44xxx4xxxxxx44xx4xx4x444x44xx444x4x44xx4xx44x44x4xxx4
Substitute the letters for binary values like this
b ⇒ 0, t ⇒ 1, x ⇒ 0, 4 ⇒ 1
And divide in groups of 5 Dividing the result from bt and x4 and converting to ASCII we obtain
npbsvtimevtwzsvp and nyesevdarkvnvivq
Then just replace n ⇒ 9, sv ⇒ 7, tw ⇒ 2, iv ⇒ 4 to get the two passcodes - 9ye7darkv9v4q and 9pb7timev2z7p
