    Squid proxy access password at 30days


    I'm working with a squid proxy server 2.4.
    I'm using the proxy server for acces to the internet.
    Every user who want to join the internet needs a loginname and password.
    the passwords are in: /etc/squid/squid_passwd

    I want users to change there password automaticly at login after every month. But every thing I try, it doesn't work but I no it is possible.

    Can anyone please help me.....

    Thanks

    what authentication process did you use? i am planning to have the same setup with you. the thing is, i am going to use existing user accounts in the same linux box running squid. with that, i can make them change their password anytime they want using usermin.

    but, i ain't successful with the authentication process. i'm using pam.
