I haven't done this, but I can't believe it would be all that hard to do,
a simple shell script combined with a call to crypt (or whatever encrypts
netbios passwords) then sed the replacement into the file. Perl would
probably be better.
Though, in general, I don't recommend doing this via the web unless you plan
on using a secure server, since web traffic is easily intercepted!
Please reply to plussier at baynetworks.com. The corp sendmail people insist on
rewriting outgoing mail (including Reply-to: headers!) to send to
'@nortelnetworks.com' which we keep telling them is quite broken, but they
don't listen :)
I've been bought, sold, and now given away :)
If you're not having fun, you're not doing it right!
