Password Expiration | PROIV Client

29 May 2003 - 01:15 PM

Another question..

Is it possible to have the PROIV client take part in changing the client's UNIX password? We have configured a password policy (through PAM) on the UNIX server that requires users to change passwords every given time period.

The Windows telnet window will appear, show the login where the PROIV client automatically entered the username and password, then the UNIX server will respond with "Your password has expired. Choose a new one. Changing password for [username]". It then prompts for "Old password: " to which the client should type their old password followed by a new one (when prompted for). Ideally PROIV would supply the old password then the user would select a new one. I tried adding "Zold password: " to the .PIV file but it crashed proiv.exe. Any suggestions? The main problem I'm having is that it seems the user has no control of that telnet window.. they can't type anything there even though it's focused on.

PROIV SSH Connection

23 May 2003 - 09:03 PM


Another question.. has anyone ever used an SSH client to make a PROIV connection to a UNIX server instead of using telnet? I would prefer not to send the passwords in clear text, and would like to use a simple client such as 'putty' instead. The entire connection would then be encrypted and the password would never be transmitted in clear text.

Any suggestions are appreciated.


Restricting "Remember Username/Password" Option

23 May 2003 - 08:51 PM


Is it possible to prevent users from checking the "Remember Username/Password" box in the PROIV 4.6 client? The client environment is Windows 2000 (for the most part) and simply making the profile read-only isn't sufficient; users can just "Save As" and save the profile elsewhere. What I'm looking for is some way to restrict this capability at the client level, and not the file level (if possible).
