       rpasswd  [-4|-6]  [-a] [-f config-file] [-h hostname] [-v]
       [-p port] [name]


       rpasswd  changes  passwords  for user accounts on a remote
       server over a secure SSL connection.  A  normal  user  may
       only  change  the  password  for their own account, if the
       user knows the password of the administrator  account  (in
       the  moment  this  is the root password on the server), he
       may change the  password  for  any  account  if  he  calls
       rpasswd with the -a option.


       -a, --admin
              With this option, rpasswd connects as administrator
              user to the remote server. The user has  to  supply
              the  administrator  password  and  can  change then
              every password.

       -f, --config-file config-file
              Specify    another    configuration    file    than

       -h, --hostname hostname
              Specify  the  name of the server, where rpasswdd(8)
              is running.

       -p, --port portnumber
              Specify the portnumber on which the server  process
              rpasswdd(8) is listening.

       -4     rpasswd  will  only  use  IPv4  to  connect  to the

       -6     rpasswd will  only  use  IPv6  to  connect  to  the
              server.   -v,  --verbose Be verbose, print SSL con­
              nection data.
