We want to keep tasks simple for our users who are intimidated by unix.
We have a client/server banking application that requires Solaris,Informix and Win95.
Our users are running Win95 clients with Solstice Network Client 3.1 over NFS.
Instead of running "telnet.exe" on the Win95 client, we want to find a way to create an Icon
that users can click on and  then get the unix prompt for their new password.
Is this possible?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I am used to NT rather than '95 but surely you can create a "short cut" to invoke telnet with the hostname, leaving the password blank to force a prompt.
braveheart, I thought of this solution too ('cause I'm using it;)
But you cannot pass a username through to telnet.
Also keep in mind that you cannot specify the TermType ;-((

Is there any way I can get Win95 to inform users of their Solaris password expiration at the Solstice Network Client login?
