Password Changes Over Wireless connection

I have a wireless environment that authenticates users using a Radius server via Active Directory.  Most of the client machines accessing the WLAN are Macs and not bound to the directory, as they are personal machines.

I need to enforce strong passwords and prompt users to change their passwords to comply with the new password change.

I have tested with a few machines and this just fails silently.  Can anyone suggest a strategy or tool to use to get the Mac users on the WLAN and prompt them to change passwords?

create an open network with a different SSID allowing users to connect just to your server, nothing else. Tell them to initiate AFP sharing and let them change password from the Connect to server window, or set up a web page hosted on your server allowing them to make the change.
