getpasswd will read upto sz - 1 chars into pw, null-terminating the resulting string.
On success, the number of characters in pw are returned, -1 otherwise.
A google search for getpass() has a reference to the GNU implementation (should be in most linux distros) and some sample code for implementing your own if need be example for rolling your own: any routine should enforce a specified maximum length to prevent overflow, truncate if the user attempt to enter beyond the maximum, and warn if truncation occurs in some manner.
Below, the additions will allow reading from any input stream, limiting the length to a specified length, provide minimal editing (backspace) ability when taking input, allow the character mask to be specified or disabled completely, and finally return the length of the password entered.
In another , you have published your Remote Web Access Role server (through the Remote Gateway) and the user can basically access the server from the internet.
In this case, if the password expired (by default) the user would not be able to reset the password.
It then prints the string pointed to by prompt, and reads a line of input, returning the null-terminated input string with the trailing newline stripped, as its function result.
User would call the helpdesk and start the resetting password process within your company.
In the last years, we have seen that IT services tend to delegate a certain number of tasks to the users (through Self-Service Portal).
If you are running Windows 2012 R2, you will need to go to your Remote Web Access server.
If you browse to the following location : /RDWeb/Pages/en-us/password.aspx, you will be redirected to the normal remote web access login page.
