Re: How can I get OpenLDAP to hash passwords as crypt?

As it stands now every client that modifies userpasswords in the directory will need a compatible crypt() function call. Plus with a single crypt function the results of the hash would be consistant.

There is actually an RFC for LDAP password-changing which defines a mechanism call EXOP. By now, most LDAP APIs should have implemented EXOP. ldappasswd, for example, is just a command-line wrapper around OpenLDAP's C implementation of an EXOP API.
