Qpopper and shadow password : password incorrect

Hi
on hpux B11.11 with /etc/shadow password (ShadowPW.SHADOW B11.11.02 from hp software depot)qpopper 4.0.5 or 4.0.8 failed with message : -ERR [AUTH] Password supplied for "joel" is incorrect.

Compile with ./configure --enable-specialauth dont correct this.

Qpopper was ok before shadow password.

Has anybody been successfull with qpopper and shadow password on HP-UX?

Thanks

Re: Qpopper and shadow password : password incorrect

I have succeeeded with this configuration.

Sometimes the conversion to shadow password locks the user id. Actually the user was probably locked prior to the conversion.

I recommend the user password be reset and you check the user with sam be checked for how many bad logins are allowed prior to lock.


$1 is in this case the username.

/usr/lbin/modprpw -l -k $1

Re: Qpopper and shadow password : password incorrect

Hello Steven

Users accounts are not locked.
Anyway my system is not trusted. I only install ShadowPassword product downloaded from hp Software depot. (usr/lbin/modprpw reply me System is not trusted.) I just want hide crypted password originaly in /etc/passwd to any users.

thanks

Re: Qpopper and shadow password : password incorrect

Verify the shadow file with a manual edit.

Sometimes in these circumstances it helps to reset the password on the user or to use sam to reactivate.

I've run qpopper trusted and shadow and it is quite possible to run this combination.

Re: Qpopper and shadow password : password incorrect

I think there is a bit more work to be done.

First, compile qpopper and add the '--with-pam=pop3' option to your configure.

# ./configure --enable-specialauth --with-pam=pop3

Now once that is done, modify the /etc/pam.conf file and add the line 'pop3 auth required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1' to all 4 sections of the pam.conf file (authentication management, account management, session management, and password management)

When you are done your /etc/pam.conf should look similar to this:

# cat /etc/pam.conf
#
# PAM configuration
#
# Authentication management
#
login auth required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
su auth required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
ftp auth required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
pop3 auth required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
OTHER auth required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
#
# Account management
#
login account required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
su account required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
ftp account required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
pop3 auth required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
#
OTHER account required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
# Session management
#
login session required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
pop3 auth required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
OTHER session required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
#
# Password management
#
login password required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
passwd password required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
pop3 auth required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1
OTHER password required /usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1



Now try logging in again. It should work.
