Blank passwords for Macintoshs

I've successfully logged in a Macintosh using cleartext and no
password.
I'm having some problems logging in the user to another server
without
cleartext.

AFP appears to find the user but I get login failed from the Mac and
Thu Feb 6 11:35:39 2003
: Thread ID = 1273, Proxy Login: failed to set NMAS_CanDo -1688 -
<fffff968>

in the log file.

Can this be done?

Thanks

wes

Re: Blank passwords for Macintoshs

It works for me here, but I had to set the user's password in C1
first.
IOW, creating a new user and not assigning a Simple Password doesn't

work. Go into that user's properties, select the Simple Password
login
method, type something in the password and confirm password fields,
then erase both and click OK -- now it works.

Re: Blank passwords for Macintoshs

That worked. I guess removing the password is different than a blank

password.

Makes sense Blank <> null.

Thanks,

wes
