I am running several systems under Solaris 8 with OpenSSH 2.9 and would
like to enforce password expiration.

I noticed that SSH inherently does not give the warnings (WARNWEEKS)
when the password expiration is coming up and I was wondering if someone
has gotten this to work, or am I going to have to wait for Sun's
approved OpenSSH package in future Solaris releases to see this feature?
