    How long is a piece of string?

    This wholly depends on which of the 2 platforms you feel most comfortable with and what you are wanting to change the password for.

    well its part of my profile in school to create a self password changer for students to change their own password, instead of technician or staff to change for them.
    has any1 got any example for me to look at??

    non programming solutions:

    You could make a restricted MMC for Staff or I let the Pupils do it themselves using OWA

    What's the environment - Active Directory or a unix based LDAP?

    If you want the students to change their own password, teach them to do CTRL + ALT + DEL and click on Change Password - if it's a password reset thing you want them to have, then I would suggest you don't let students do it themselves .. that would cause havock as that would be well open to abuse whereby pupils would reset each others passwords etc.

    ADLDAP library for PHP gives full AD / LDAP administration functionality. I used it to create our self-service password reset portal. adLDAP - LDAP Authentication with PHP for Active Directory
