I am not sure if I have got the question right but as far as I can understand you are looking to change the password of the users belonging to an active directory from the captive portal page, which is not possible. let me know if I got it wrong or you need more information.

Thanks,

Hi Sandeep,

that was the question.

Are there any plans to fix/implement this?

Because we are using the captive portal for a lot of external consultants they are temporary working for us with their own equipment.

At the moment we have to ask them to logon with their AD-Account and the password given bye us to a machine in our company so that they are able to change the password first.

That sounds somewhat risky because the PA would need to be domain admin in order to change passwords of users (or whatever that role is called nowdays in AD) but should be doable if you add a custom link to the captive portal page which goes to your internal server (on DMZ or such) where you have a script that takes username, current pass and new pass as input (and hopefully some other security measures on the road).
