As far as I understand, this implies that I need root-privileges to the
password database to change the unix-password since the old password is
transfered encrypted. Is there a hack (other than extra client/server
programs for passowrd-changes) to have password sync in a setup, where
the unix-password-database is on a different computer (i.e. unix
passwords are distributed via NIS)?
