Summary: FTP Problem with Solaris 2.3

From: Cynthia J. Crooks (

FTP on a system running Solaris 2.3 and NIS+ will not accept a password longer than 8
characters. If a user has a password which exceeds this length, ftp will work if he uses only
the first 8 characters of the password.

Many thanks to Steve Kay and Ewan Brown for their help.
