Password policy for VPN usersQuestion:

Hello,  I want to implement a strong password policy for our remote user who use vpn to access our network.  The problem I am having is that when it comes time to change their password they don't get a chance because the cisco vpn client wants the new password.  They then have to call us and we then change their password and then they can log in.   I have done some searches and from what I found is that I need to get a third party software to remind users to change their password before the actual due date.  Does anyone know a better way?  I figure that there are a lot of remote users out there who have to change their passwords all the time.  NOTE: We have a windows 2003 domain and the users have Windows 7 Ultimate/Enterprise.

Thanks,

Billl

This can be done with Cisco ACS using RADIUS.  The user is notified their password is expiring and they are able to enter a new password.  I'd have to hunt for the documentation but I'm sure it's in the ACS docs.  But I believe you are correct -- without something like ACS and RADIUS, the sysadmin would have to set the new password for the user.
