    The ability to allow a user to change a FTP user password remotely is not part of the original RFC-959 specification.

    vsftpd does not support "requierd password change on first time login" how ever it supports the PASS command through the SITE command, so if your ftp client supports sending abitrary commands to the server your users will be able to change their password by issuing the command:
    Code:
    SITE PASS <old passwd> <new passwd>

    If they are using, say ncftp, they can type it in after logging in.

    ftp> SITE PASS oldpass newpass
