Change password for the LAN connection

Recommended Posts

Hello Groove,

 

First of all let me congratulate you for hosting such a great and simple site. Unlike any other site, i feel like reading when i opened this site.

Well done.

Now, my question is related to the changing of password.

My computer is connected to a university LAN and i could like to change the password of the LAN connection. I asked about this in the helpdesk but they where not able to help me. May be they took my question so lightly. Do you have any idea about this.

 

And I do have one more question Groove. Which software are you using to make your answers. It looks great. Especially the dialogue bubbles. Its easy to understand.

Hello Groove,

Now, my question is related to the changing of password.

My computer is connected to a university LAN and i could like to change the password of the LAN connection. I asked about this in the helpdesk but they where not able to help me. May be they took my question so lightly. Do you have any idea about this.

 

Ok, should be a simple one however, I might need some additional information. For now I"ll go ahead and make some assumptions in order to answer your question. I'm "Hoping" that when you say "Change LAN Password", your talking about your local password on your machine.

 

Change Password Windows XP

1: Press - CTRL-ALT-DEL keys on the keyboard.

2: Click - Change Password

 

That's it.

 

To recap: On a Windows XP machine the easiest way to change your password is to login to your completed and press the CTRL+ALT+DEL button. This will cause XP to display a box with a few options on it. One of the options will say "Change Password". Just click that and it will prompt you to change your password. This process will change the password for an XP machine configured for a local workgroup AND configured in a Windows Active Directory Domain.

 

That is of course if this is the password your trying to change? When you say "LAN Password" I assume that's the password your talking about?

Thanks for the reply Groove but that was not what i exactly need. By doing the above step, i am able to change the password i used to login to the system. Now, let me try to explain my problem more clearly.

 

After login into the system, my computer automatically connects to the network by the default login id and password. Now the some of the people here know my id and password(which is use to connect to network). So i would like to change that. As in the university we have to enter it when we navigate from one website to another.

 

I dont know, whether i'm asking some silly things :).

Anyways thanks once again for your reply.

Hmm..

 

Form the information your giving me and from the screenshot, I still cannot tell what the University is using for their User Database. From the screenshot, I'm guessing it's not Windows.

 

So with that in mind, unfortunately you will need to continue to work with your IT staff to find a way to change your PW. Hopefully they have a website which is fronting the account database which would allow you to change your PW.

 

If it were windows and they had something like Outlook Web Access setup, you could use that to change your password. But again, they are probably using a *Nix type system.

 

Sorry....

Hi Jas - groovydude has it right. sounds like you need to crack the whip on your IT guys at your univ. that's just crazy that they don't publish any way for you to change your PW.

 

What university is it anyway?

That's probably a good idea :) No need to call anyone. What's important is that you get your password changed.

 

If anything else comes up, please let us know.
