How about giving them a 'Change Password' icon that runs a standard Windows
Telnet to the relevant AS/400, & also providing an initial program for each
of their user profiles that *just* does a CHGPWD and then signs off
automatically? It would look a bit naff, but it would be usable (they
wouldn't need any of the strange Telnet keyboard mappings, just the Enter
and Tab keys). You'd have to be careful that password expiry didn't mean
they got the same prompt twice!

Subject:  How do I allow NetServer-only users to change their AS/400 passwo
      rds?




Hi all.

We have a number of users here who need access to the AS/400 via
NetServer only; they are not AS/400 programmers, they never need to sign
on to a green screen, but they do need to be able to add and edit files
in the IFS.

We have NetServer running, appropriate shares set up, and User Profiles
set up matching the Windows user names.  However, I can't find any way
to allow such users to change their AS/400 passwords from the PC.  It
would seem like massive overkill to insall Client Access Express on each
machine and show them all how to sign on and change their passwords.

We're on V4R4 and NT4, FWIW.  I've searched the archives, IBM's site and
Usenet fairly comprehensively, and I'm beginning to believe that there
is no solution to this.  But surely IBM couldn't be so dumb...? :-)

Cheers,

Martin.
