Thumbs up user can change passwd


I'm using Rh9.0 and running ftp & web server.
But i hope that these users can change their passwd
by themselves. Do anyone have any security method that
allow them to do it ? Becasue i don't want they use telnet
to change their passwd.

How about ssh? They do need access to a terminal in order to chage their passwords.

It is a good thought about telnet, in our environment at work we use telnet on internal systems that are not accessable from outside, it makes creating user accounts on these systems pretty simple with adduser and passwd -d username, in such case they are able to telnet to the box and when they enter their username they get a prompt to set their password, on ssh I am thinking the authentication with DSA/RSA keys might be deployed, since the sequence of granting access to the system is pub/private keys handshake followed by keyboard-interactive, password if the keys authentication cannot be accomplished.
