Changing Passwords
 
Hello.

Does anyone know of a tool that a windows client can use to change their password on Linux server over the network.

The linux server is not a NIS server or anything. Just a samba, ftp, dhcp, dns etc.

Anyone know of any?

Thanks alot.

Sorry.

Would they be able to change their smbpasswd as well logging in as a normal user?

Thanks
Craig
