    Hi there!

    To get right to the point: :D

    I work in a company. Our Server is running NT, our computers on W2K and WinXP. To better secure our computers, we have ticked "change passwords every 60 days" on the server.

    This works very well for every person working in the company.

    We have a few laptop users, though - and there is one problem: They get the "You have to change password" messages after the 60 days, so they change the passwords.

    However, as soon as they connect to the server (let's say via VPN) the server gets confused since there are two conflicting passwords - worst case scenario is that the account gets disabled (best case being it ignores the error if you use old password for logon to VPN, but in most cases, we get loads of calls after 60 days).

    I know this problem wouldn't occur if the users would first connect to the Domain via VPN and then change their password.

    Is there any other way around this?

    Thanks!
