I don't know of any API which will verify a user ID/password. Maybe someone else does. However, I have an API (TNAPI) which you can call to perform interactive functions in batch. You could use it to try signing on with the user ID and password. Kind of kludgy but it would work.

I think you might be referring to the CHKPWD command Al Barsa recommended. That will be great for re-verifying the user who signed on. We do that at times. But, the problem is that it verifies a password against the user profile of the person who has signed on - not just that it is valid. Hence, the need for an API that would pass a different user profile ID to what I was hoping would be the CHKPWD command. Guess I left that out of the first message. Thanks again for you help. >Date: Fri, 05 Jan 2001 07:00:07 +1300 >From: Evan Harris <firstname.lastname@example.org> >Subject: Re: Password validation API >Hi Fran >Depending on your menu/control programs there is a CL Command available to >do what you want in addition to the API's already mentioned .
