can't get password change to work for remote access

Your post

I'm using external authentication, creating accounts and groups on the FileMaker Server and groups on 2 of 3 client files.  My problem is that if I try to force a password change it won't work, saying the user doesn't have the authority.  If I remove the check for "change password at next signon" it works, thinking I'll have them change it manually - but change password is greyed out on the file menu.  Tried giving them more authority on the server but that didn't fix it.  The application uses 3 files, and the third file, which is used for multiple applications and is transparent to the users, doesn't require a password.  Could that be the problem?
