AFPPASSWD(1)			    3.1.12			  AFPPASSWD(1)

NAME
       afppasswd - netatalk password maintenance utility

SYNOPSIS
       afppasswd [-acfn] [-p passwd file] [-u minimum uid]

DESCRIPTION
       afppasswd allows	the maintenance	of afppasswd files created by netatalk
       for use by the uams_randnum.so UAM (providing the "Randnum exchange"
       and "2-Way Randnum exchange" User Authentication	Modules).

       afppasswd can either be called by root with parameters, or can be
       called by local system users with no parameters to change their AFP
       passwords.

	   Note
	   With	this utility you can only change the passwords used by two
	   specific UAMs. As they provide only weak password encryption, the
	   use of the "Randnum exchange" and "2-Way Randnum exchange" UAMs is
	   deprecated unless one has to	support	very old AFP clients, that can
	   not deal with the more secure "DHCAST128" and "DHX2"	UAM instead.
	   Please compare with the Authentication chapter inside Netatalk's
	   documentation.

EXAMPLE
       Local user changing their own password:

	   example% afppasswd
	   Enter NEW AFP password: (hidden)
	   Enter NEW AFP password again: (hidden)
	   afppasswd: updated password.

OPTIONS
       -a
	   Add a new user to the afppasswd file.

       -c
	   Create and/or initialize afppasswd file or specific user.

       -f
	   Force the current action.

       -p path
	   Path	to afppasswd file.

       -n
	   If cracklib support is built	into netatalk this option will cause
	   cracklib checking to	be disabled, if	the superuser does not want to
	   have	the password run against the cracklib dictionary.

       -u minimum uid
	   This	is the minimum user id (uid) that afppasswd will use when
	   creating users.
