 where can I get the source code(or binary) for chfn* for Solaris 2.5.1 or SunOS 5.0? Do not point me any other platform because I do not have time to port the source code to Solaris(SunOS). I know it is easy to port the source code from Linux to SunOS but I do NOT have any time(unless you can do it for me).

 Thank You ...

You don't give us enough info to go on.
Do you use shadow passwords or not?
If you do I may be able to mail you a binary filr from Solaris 2.6 (I belive).
If you want to search for the source (which is probably the same for all platforms) then hop into:
http://ftpsearch.ntnu.no/ftpsearch/
or else try your luck:
http://www.solarisfreeware.com

HTH,

 thanks dotand,

 I will try if I can find it in the sites you're saying. It is Soloaris 2.5.1(not 2.6.**). YES! Shadow salt encryption is installed. I believe if I get binary version that will be easy for me to change something(Name/Shell/etc.). These last days I found out that even the header files are deleted from the system for security reasons, meaning far more tough work to do.
 Thanks, I will try your advice ... to see if I can get something out of it ...
