OK, this is what I discovered. When I uninstall NMAS client, the newest available (win xp) then, users can change their passwords. Once I install the NMAS client, users can not. It does not matter if the NMAS authentication is ON or Off.

NMAS trace, no logs are added when a user tries to change password and change is unsuccesfull.

Hi guys,
We run Netware 6.5 sp6, and used a little file (available in coolsolutions) as Zen app to allow users to change their password. Some time ago something changed and this does not work..users can't change their passwords any longer. Any thoughts?

Thank you
