Is there a password tool that will allow remote users to change there passwords while on the road? We currently use Citrix and OWA which both fail when prompt to change password which we do every 72 days, when they change their password it will not allow them in again with log in errors.
Thank you,
Chuck

OWA should do this by default?

in short, no there is no tool that will allow this, aside from having a web application running to allow. OWA should do this out of the box (or at least does in 2007), and Citrix should prompt the user 15 days onwards on login that their account is about to expire (and do they want to change their password). Aside from that, Citrix (or Aventail for example) do a SSL VPN that will allow password changes.

However, most of these wont work past the password expiring, only when it is in "countdown" mode :)

If you refer to the folowing KB article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297121/en-us it describes how to setup your server to allow users to change their passwords via OWA.

We have this setup and it works very well.
