    Wait for the next ECO to come out (should be soon). That will depend upon
    your client's capabilities, but most recent clients will be able to work
    like this. Note that we actually had this capability a couple years ago,
    but a) the SECSH working group kept changing their mind as to how to do
    password changing, and b) hardly any clients supported it; hence, it got
    removed at the time.

    Can you clarify?

    Client is PuTTY 0.58 and of course the VMS IP stacks own SSH Client...

    I log into a system with 2 PuTTY clients in parallel into the same user
    on the same system. First gets the password change dialog and waits for
    input, second is stuck after entering the password. Until first client
    completes changing the passwords (maybe minutes later) and then the second
    client gets the password change dialog (which is funny because the old
    password is no longer the old password). I don't see why these 2 jobs
    are related...

    Thanks for responding
    and happy weekend
