we have a couple of users which "forget" to change the passwords even if
they get an reminder.
Normally we tell them to use a windows machine, where you can change
your password if it's expired.
But how can a remote user change his password if it's expired ?
Is there any secure solution for this ?
"Normally we tell them to use a windows machine" -> so I'll assume you
are on a Linux machine. I think you'll have to do your expired password
update through an LDAP query. You can get some inspiration from this
page  or from the bugzilla entry  of the recent security issue. In
any case you'll need to have SSL, and I guess a valid (from your desktop
point of view) certificate on your DC, to use this type of LDAP query.
