in reply to password change

You have to ssh to the server and run /usr/sbin/usermod <username> -p crypted-password

Eg :-

$crypted_pass = crypt $password, substr(crypt(rand, "AA"), 2, 2); system("ssh", "-l", "root", "www.perlmonks.com", "/usr/sbin/usermod '$user' -p '$crypted_pass'") == 0 or die "...";
(Just kidding ;-)
