My current Kernel version is '2.4.20-8' for Red Hat 9
Anyway, I am using it with Radius server for authentication. Now that Radius requires password encrypted
in the format of /etc/passwd I had to copy/paste one to store it inside MySQL! This was the only way to
authenticate using encrypted passwords. Now I want to create an online interface (via web) to
create/manage users sessions.
I tried inside PHP the function: 'crypt($myUserName)' and it gave me exactly the needed format while I am
having problem inside PERL.
Between, I need to call it from within a PERL scripts!
