Re: Can the simple password be blank/null

Has anyone tried this from a MAC? We are interested in setting up
generic ID's with no password, but have had no success, any info would

be greatly appreciated.

Re: Can the simple password be blank/null

Works for me here... Mac OS 8.5 connecting to an NW6SP2 server running

NFA for Mac. In C1, I went to the user's Simple Password screen, type

a character into the password field (to get the OK button to become
avialable), hit backspace to erase it, did the same in the confirm
password field, then clicked OK. The user logs in from the Mac
a problem.
