Browse users email password trough ssh
 
Hi.
I once used a command to check all users password at once so i can remind myself one that i forgot about. Months passed and i cant remember that command any more.
I tried to pico passwd and shadow under /etc but it didnt help since passwords are masked.
Any suggestions?

Passwords in Linux are always encrypted with a one way has, so you can never browse them in cleartext.

If you want to check the consistence of the passwd, group and shadow files, run the command:

pwck

and

grpck
