       rpasswdd [-4|-6] [-d] [-c certificate] [-k privatekey] [-p


       rpasswdd  is  a  daemon that lets users change their pass­
       words in the presence of a  directory  service  like  NIS,
       NIS+  or  LDAP  over  a  secure  SSL  connection. rpasswdd
       behaves like the normal passwd(1) program and uses PAM for
       authentification  and  changing the password, so it can be
       configured very flexibel for the local requirements.

       A normal user may only change the password for  their  own
       account, if the user knows the password of the administra­
       tor account (in the moment this is the  root  password  on
       the server), he may change the password for any account if
       he calls rpasswd with the -a option.


       -d, --debug
              Causes the server to run in  debugging  mode.  Nor­
              mally,  rpasswdd reports only errors using the sys­
              log(3) facility. In debug mode, the server does not
              background  itself and prints extra status messages
              to stderr for each request that it revceives.

       -c, --certificate certificate
              Specify another file which contains the certificate
              than /etc/rpasswdd.pem.

       -k, --privatekey privatekey
              Specify another file which contains the private key
              than /etc/rpasswdd.pem.

       -p, --port port number
              Specify another port where the daemon  will  listen
              on for requests.

       -4     rpasswdd will only accept IPv4 connections.

       -6     rpasswd will accept IPv4 and IPv6 connections.


       /etc/pam.d/rpasswd - the PAM configuration file
       /etc/rpasswdd.pem  -  contains the certificate and private


       passwd(1), passwd(5), rpasswd(1)
