I'm not sure that it is even supposed to, but most of the documentation suggests adding to /etc/login.conf default section: ":passwordcheck=/usr/local/bin/pwqcheck -1 :\" Adding the "config=/path/" option does pick up the config settings properly, i.e.: " :passwordcheck=/usr/local/bin/pwqcheck -1 config=/etc/passwdqc.conf:\" I took a look at the 1.2.2 source from the ports tree and didn't see any references to /etc/passwdqc.conf other than in the makefile, but it looks like that is just for the config file installation location. Is pwqcheck supposed to read the /etc/passwdqc.conf by default? If not I can suggest to the OpenBSD package maintainer to document the need for the "config=" option in the login.conf settings. Thanks, -Tom -------- example: $ pwqcheck -1 tbtt9qzyyu2a OK $ pwqcheck -1 config=/etc/passwdqc.conf tbtt9qzyyu2a Bad passphrase (not enough different characters or classes)
