Hi Robert,

I think the most secure (since you are not using SSL) and  preferred way
is to use a small application for this. You can easily give the users a
web interface (written using php-ldap) to change their passwords or
whatever stuff.

phpldapadamin would do as well. But it's nicer to have your own
something :)
