Do I understand correctly that normally they are just using ssh for port forwarding? If so, what if ssh
is normally called with the -N
option? And then don't use that option for the times when they do want to change the password. Under Linux you could create an alias for this. If perchance they are using PuTTY on a Microsoft system I believe there is an option in its "control panel" that does the same thing.
