passwd username

You have to add username as parameter of the passwd command to change password of a user other than root.

It's really really a bad idea to post personal information (id and password of any kind) in a public world-wide forum. For this reason I masked them out from your post. If you really trust some LQ users to let them access your machine, please contact them privately through the contact page of their LQ profile.

Once more, please remember that sharing knowledge and technical information about Linux or other *nix systems is welcome and it's what keeps LinuxQuestions alive. On the contrary, becoming a vehicle of potential malicious attacks through the disclosure of personal information is what may bring LinuxQuestions down. Hope this never ever happen.
