I have a password to join a unix shell. The computer has saved it. It will auto join the shell. But all I see is Password: **********
I am have forgotten the password. I am afraid if something goese wrong with the settings, I will have problem to join since I am unable to remember the password.
Is there any way to find what the password: ********** stands for?(the real name, not stars)
Regard Sussi
