whether a client which hasn't been updated to the new password

under V6, you can set RMTPWDENC according to what you're talking to).
And our client products, even the ones that use Host Servers rather than

boxes running QPWDLVL 2 (and maybe even 3), albeit with passwords of
those users enrolled in client-server products restricted to
