    Self-service password reset


    Hello

    Anyone knows or have to suggest application or tool for user password reset/change with self-service portal for Linux?

    We are building an SFTP server and we wish to give the ability to (non-techie) users to reset/change their passwords. A web portal would be best.

    We are looking for open-source or free solutions but any commercial suggestions are also welcome.

    Thank you very much in advance

    You probably want to use webmin.

    Give users the the application called usermin, I have included a website for your review:

    Code:
    http://www.webmin.com/ustandard.html
    That way, they can log into their session and do what they want, change passwords, ssh logins, etc.

    Maybe check out ZPanel. It's a fully featured panel, I'm not sure if you can do only ftp or not, but I know it does a bunch of stuff.

    I think the best way to reset Windows password is to use the Windows password reset disk, you won’t lose any data in this way. So I do suggest you to burn a Windows password reset disk if you lost windows password(http:resetwindowspassword.net).

    To the last Windows respondent,

    I think the question was referring to Linux, besides, this is a Linux forum, not for Windows.

    In addition, he stated that he wanted to use a portal. Webmin or Zpanel will give you the ability to perform password resets with portal features.
