Hello, I am running FreeBSD 5.1.
In /etc/login.conf, I see my password_format is set to MD5. Now let's assume a temporary user I created. He logs in as 'nerdy' and his password is 'FreeBSD'. (without quotes of course) # $FreeBSD: src/etc/master.passwd,v 1.34 2003/04/27 05:45:29 imp Exp $ # nerdy:$1$1xYw.V8w$IozDgrd4srvZPPqu85cR..:1005:1006::0:0:Mr. Know-it-all:/home/nerdy:/bin/sh The $1$ means we are in fact using MD5. but when I run md5 in the command line, I get $ md5 -s FreeBSD MD5 ("FreeBSD") = a3dc630729e463135f4e608954fa6e19 which is considerably different. Why is that?
