NAME

       globus-gridftp-password  - creates an encrypted password to be used for
       an user of the Globus GridFTP server

SYNOPSYS

       globus-gridftp-password

DESCRIPTION

       Create encrypted user passwords to be used with the GridFTP  server  in
       case it is configured to use clear text password. However, this type of
       functionality is not recommended, unless the network is trusted.

       The globus-gridftp-password command asks for a password and generates a
       line  in  the  same  format  as  the  standard  password file (see file
       /etc/passwd). Such a line can be appended to the password file used  by
       the GridFTP server.

EXAMPLE

       % gridftp-password.pl >> pwfile
         Password:

       Generates  a  password  line for the current user and append it to file
       "pwfile".
