 Enter your current password in the "​Current"​ field, and enter your desired new password in the "New Password"​ and confirmation fields. Then click "​Save"​.

The error message may be "​Passwords do not match",​ in which case the two new passwords entered are not identical.

-====== Alternative web based password change at IBG ====== 
-This Alternative web based password changing method will **only work from on-campus computers**. 
-From off campus the [[http://​www.colorado.edu/​its/​vpn/​index.html|CU 
-VPN]] must be installed and running before online password changing 
-will work. 
  
-===== Where to Go ===== 
-The URL for password changes is [[https://​ibg.colorado.edu:​901]] **Pages may be slow to load, please be patient.** 
- 
-The quick instructions: ​ Follow the above link, login and enter your old (current) and new password at the appropriate places. 
- 
-For more detailed instructions it is probably easiest to right-click on the above link and select ''​Open link in new window''​ (or whatever is appropriate in your browser) so that these instructions can be seen at the same time as the password change window. 
- 
-===== Initial Login ===== 
- 
-Before anything is shown on the web page a login window will be presented: 
- 
-{{IE7-login.png?​nolink|Internet Explorer 7 login window}} 
- 
-Enter your ''​username''​ and existing ''​password''​ into the appropriate boxes. ​ If you have multiple IBG passwords, this is the same username and password that you use to access IBG e-mail, such as [[https://​ibg.colorado.edu/​squirrelmail|Squirrelmail]]. 
- 
-===== SWAT Page ===== 
- 
-The browser will now show the SWAT page: 
- 
-{{swat.png?​nolink|SWAT}} 
- 
- 
-Click on the {{passwd.gif?​nolink|Password}} button. 
- 
-===== Password Change Page ===== 
- 
-Two password dialogs are displayed. ​ Only the ''​Server Password 
-Management''​ section is important, ''​Client/​Server Password 
-Management''​ should be ignored. 
- 
-{{ server_password_management.png?​nolink |Server Password Management}} 
- 
-  - The appropriate ''​username''​ should already be entered into the ''​User Name 
-:''​ field. 
-  - Enter your current ''​password''​ into the ''​Old Password:''​ field. ​ This **may** be different from the ''​password''​ just used to access the this page.  This password is the same as the one used to login to the IBG Windows domain (the one used when logging into Windows with ''​ctrl-alt-delete''​). ​ It is probably the same as the password recently used, but it may not be. 
-  - Choose a new password: 
-    * Tips [[http://​www.colorado.edu/​its/​security/​awareness/​passwords/​passwords.html|on choosing a strong password]] from ITS. 
-      * The password should be 8 or more characters long 
-      * Include upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and punctuation 
-      * Do not use the characters '':​ # ' [ ]''​ 
-      * Do not use any dictionary word //no matter how obscure// 
-    * Do not share your password with **anybody** 
-      * IBG and ITS support people do not want or need your password 
-      * Maintaining a secure password is the [[http://​www.colorado.edu/​policies/​cnr/​guidelines.html|very first 
-item]] in CU's [[http://​www.colorado.edu/​policies/​cnr/​guidelines.html|Guidelines for Computer Users]] 
-      * Sharing of passwords is a direct violation of Section C.1.a of CU's [[http://​www.colorado.edu/​policies/​cnr/​index.html|Computing and Network Resources]] document. 
-  - Enter your new ''​password''​ into the ''​New Password :''​ and ''​Re-type New Password : ''​ fields. 
-  - Click ''​Change Password''​. 
- 
-If the message shown is 
-  The passwd for '​IBGuser'​ has been changed. ​ 
-then the password has been updated. ​ The e-mail and Windows passwords are now the same. 
- 
-If the message shown is 
-  Could not connect to machine 127.0.0.1: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE ​ 
-then the ''​Old Password :''​ password was incorrect. ​ Try again taking care to enter the old password without typos, or perhaps trying a different password. If this message continues to appear then contact [[Jeff.Lessem@Colorado.edu|Jeff Lessem]] to reset your password.
