Question:

Does ExtremeZ-IP support passwords longer than 8 characters? Does ExtremeZ-IP support encrypted passwords?

Answer:

ExtremeZ-IP supports both long passwords and encrypted passwords via the DHX UAM (user authentication module). The DHX UAM is software from Apple that allows the AppleShare login dialog to accept long passwords (up to 64-characters), and exchange the password with the server in an encrypted protocol. The DHX UAM is included with the AppleShare Client 3.8.3 and later, and is also built-in to Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. In general, you should be using the latest version of the AppleShare Client available for your version of the Mac OS. More information about AppleShare Client versions can be found on Apple’s website.
