FAQ
Hi all,
I have an issue where I need to find an easy way to change ssh
password in 3 different machines at the same time, at least in one go.
Is there such tool? Preferably Web based.
Thank you.

    Joking - right?
    1. Why are you using password based authentication on ssh - these
    machines must be on an isolated network and not accessible from the
    internet otherwise the script kiddies will target you and compromise
    your systems.
    2. use webmin if you really need web based admin tools - but even here
    it pays to block the webmin port (usually 10000) via your firewall and
    use VPN or ssh tunnelling to gain access.
    3. use private/public keys for ssh authentication - once set up, much
    more secure and easier to operate.
    Thank you.

    there is no such thing as a 'ssh password'. there are user passwords.

    if you have a network of systems, you would be best off implementing a
    shared authentication scheme such as LDAP or NIS, where all the systems
    use the same central database for user authentication.
