<h1>PopPass</h1>
<hr>
<p>
PopPass - a CGI script in Perl to allow users to changes their password
using their Web Browser. PopPass uses poppassd version 1.2 to actually make 
the password change. It can therefore run as an unprivileged user on any 
Web server (not necessarily the server where the password file exists).
<p>

<h2>Disclaimer</h2>

<p>
PopPass is used daily on our system and has proved reliable for us. However,
it may not work on your system. Please test it thoroughly.

<h2>Requirements</h2>

<p>
You can find the latest version of PopPass at 
<A HREF="ftp://ftp.mtnsoft.com/poppass/PopPass-3.tgz">
ftp.mtnsoft.com/poppass/PopPass-3.tgz</A>

<p>poppassd v1.2 from QualComm's ftp site:<br>
<A HREF="ftp://ftp.qualcomm.com/eudora/servers/unix/password/pwserve-4">
ftp://ftp.qualcomm.com/eudora/servers/unix/password/pwserve-4</A>
<br>or if you are running Linux with shadow passwords:
<br><A HREF="ftp://ftp.ceti.com.pl/pub/linux/poppassd-1.8-ceti.tar.gz">
ftp://ftp.ceti.com.pl/pub/linux/poppassd-1.8-ceti.tar.gz</A>

<p>Perl 5 as well as the following Perl modules (available from your favorite
CPAN site). I got 'em from <A HREF="ftp://ftp.cis.ufl.edu/pub/perl/">
ftp://ftp.cis.ufl.edu/pub/perl/</A>
<p>
CGI<br>
IO::SOCKET

<h2>Installation</h2>

<p>
Download and install the poppassd and the Perl modules if you don't already 
have them on your system. Copy poppass to your cgi-bin directory, chmod 700 
and chown www or whatever user your server runs as.

<h2>Site Configuration</h2>

<p>
You may edit the file poppass to configure to your site. It's (sort of)
self explanatory. If your web server is also your users' UNIX host then
thinks should work without modification.

<h2>Using PopPass</h2>

<p>
Using you Web browser enter the URL
http://www.myserver.net/cgi-bin/poppass to use the default form or...
Design your own form similar to the following but with appropiate
instructions:
<hr>
<FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="/cgi-bin/poppass">
<INPUT TYPE=HIDDEN NAME="server" VALUE="ns.newwave.net">
<PRE><b>           UserName: </b> <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="username" VALUE="" SIZE=25> 
<b>       Old Password: </b> <INPUT TYPE="password" NAME="password" VALUE="" SIZE=25> 
<b>       New Password: </b> <INPUT TYPE="password" NAME="newpassword1" VALUE="" SIZE=25> 
<b>Verify New Password: </b> <INPUT TYPE="password" NAME="newpassword2" VALUE="" SIZE=25> 

                      <INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="action" VALUE="Change Password"></pre>
</FORM>
