I need to maintain a smbpasswd file by hand. This means being able to
encode a plain text password in to the NT Hash, and inserting this in to
the required field in smbpasswd. I was looking at the code in smbpasswd
with the idea of splitting out the code to do this. Has anyone already
done this?  Basically I want a program I can give a plain text password to
and get back the NT hash encrypted verion of what the password

Any pointers?
