rpcclient/samedit are for remote administration of NT and NT-like
systems. They implement the various RPC calls used to this end in NT.
These calls are particularly useful because NT doesn't ship with a
generalized remote access mechanism like telnet, ssh or xdmcp.
So I assumed you were talking about remote administration of accounts
on NT. In which case rpcclient/TNG is a much much better idea than
rpcclient/HEAD or rpcclient/2.2pre. If instead you are wanting remote
administration of Samba [non-TNG] accounts on Unix, the best option is
probably to use ssh, then locally run smbpasswd.
And that's about all I have to say about that.
