This worked perfectly! Thank you.

Now I just have to figure out how to automate it in a script to provide a
prompt (some of these kids are new users! So I'm trying to make it as easy
as possible for them...)

Thanks!

remove the b from the options, and it will prompt.

Hi All
Does anyone know of a quick/painless way to create an encrypted {crypt} password via the command like on Red Hat? I need my users to do this and I don't want them to have to write much syntax, etc., as that will be too much for them. I was hoping there was some built-in (or other) method that allows creating an encrypted password, depending on what the user types in for the password. Thank you! Anne

Do you mean something like what htpasswd does?


$ htpasswd -cb jones.passwd jones Pwd4Steve $ cat jones.passwd $ cat
jones.passwd jones:P9D.NILQAK/KM
