How do users change passwords on non NT workstations?

How do users change passwords on non NT workstations?

How do users change passwords on non NT workstations?

(OP)
I have installed a Microsoft client on the WIN 95 machines and I need to know how the users can change their passwords without assistance. I know on NT workstations you type ctrl-alt-delete. But you know what that does to WIN 95. Please help!!

RE: How do users change passwords on non NT workstations?

Try: Start - Control Panel - Passwords. Hope this helps.

RE: How do users change passwords on non NT workstations?

tried that, it brought up Windows and Novell, but not NT even though I was logged into the NT server, that didn't do it! I wish it were that simple! Any other suggestions?!

RE: How do users change passwords on non NT workstations?

Have you tried logging off then log on as a different user. Go to shut down but select the option "close all programs and log on as a different user." This will give the user the chance to chose another password to log onto windows.

RE: How do users change passwords on non NT workstations?

Check the user properties under NT's user manager and make suer "user cannot change password" is not checked.

I looked again at control panel - passwords - change other passowrds and it allows the user to change the microsoft networking password there. Is client for micorsoft networks installed in control panel - network - configuration?
