Question change squid proxy password using chpasswd


i configured chpasswd on my RHEL 5 so that my squid users can change there squid password when ever they want.
But i am unable to use this Functionality. How can user access it on there web browsers to change there password.
my squid, Sarg ,webmin as well as chpasswd are installed on my server 10.135.90.200. How can user refer to this server so that change password screen comes on his browser.

What would make you think that chpasswd would just 'come up' on someones browser?? That's a command-line utility. If you want it to be able to work via a web browser, then write a PHP page that uses it.

If you bothered to try to look this up, you'd have even found a page that has a sample PHP script already written that you can use.
