I know the huge amount of discussion about cleartext and encrypted
and Unix management  versus Samba management.

I use NIS password management and I wonder if anybody knows why Win95 & 98
send encrypted passwords for the old passwords when a change request is made
from Windows (not from a DOS box using "net password" which works fine).

When cleartext passwords are choosen, isn't it stupid to do so ? Isn't there
a way to
avoid this ?
