afppasswd - netatalk password maintenance utility
afppasswd [-acfn] [ -p passwd file ] [ -u minimum uid ]
afppasswd allows the maintenance of afppasswd files created by netatalk
for use by the uams_randnum.so UAM (providing the "Randnum exchange"
and "2-Way Randnum exchange" User Authentication Modules).
afppasswd can either be called by root with parameters, or can be
called by local system users with no parameters to change their AFP
With this utility you can only change the passwords used by two
specific UAMs. As they provide only weak password encryption,
the use of the "Randnum exchange" and "2-Way Randnum exchange"
UAMs is deprecated unless one has to support very old AFP
clients, that can not deal with the more secure "DHCAST128" UAM
instead. Please compare with the [Cross reference to non-exis-
tant ID “authentication”] inside Netatalk’s documentation.
