I have looked on the Knowledgebase with no luck. We're a mixed NW5.1SP5,
NW6.5SP1.1 environment. I've got a 6.5 server with Native File Access
configured to allow Macs (OSX) to connect. I want the users to create their
own simple passwords, so I have "cleartext" enabled temporarily.

However, every user who has an eDir password longer than 8 characters gets
an error:

"Password error
You have entered more characters thant the maximum number allowed."

At first, I thought there was a problem with the Simple password. But,
since this error appears as soon as the user tries to input the 9th password
character (prior to clicking on the "Connect" button) I'm thinking it's a
Mac issue.

Does anyone know how to fix this?
