I set up a Samba server on Ubuntu 12.04 in a network with five clients running Windows 7. We're not using a domain, just a workgroup. Everything is working fine.
Is there a way users can change their Samba passwords from their Windows clients? Preferably not involving an ssh client but using a web-interface or even a native Windows method.
Using Usermin for now. It works but it's a bit overkill, I'm curious if you know any more elegant solutions.
