- Subject: Repost : cannot change password using "passwd" command
For account policy in both local server and domain
server, the minimum character for password is 0.
Moreover, I can use user account to change password in
w2k GUI (ie. CTRL+ALT+DEL --> change password), with
the same set of password tried in Cygwin.
I don't want user use the console, so I hope they can
change their password using telnet.
Is there any setting needed for local user use
"passwd" ? Can local user change password by "passwd"
Would you mind to help me ? THanks
