It is not as simple as it sounds. I am not aware that is such software available.

The closest I can think of is plink from putty site. You can send commands in Windows with plink.

There is Linux software to change password from a remote system that uses certificate for authentication but it is complex and not what you are looking for.

You could install Cygwin on the Windows system and use expect. But I would not recommend doing it - you need to send the passwords in clear

In my opinion everyone has posted a suggestion and possible solution to your question.

You are looking for a out-of-box Windows binary to change Linux password. It isn't sound that simple if you understand the underlying concept of Linux / ssh.

I understand linux very well, I have been working with the command prompt for a very long time. Non of the above answers the questions that I initially asked. I need a simple piece of software that an end user that has no linux experience that can launch type in a IP of the server their user name current password and their new password so it can be changed. They cannot use SSH directly.

I understand it is not that simple and yes it is an out of the box question, but I cannot see this as being a far fetched question and their not being a simple solution for it. The above solutions are not acceptable for the situation.

You need to write the end user software yourself. For a GUI solution, you could start with an expectk script for instance.
