    Hi ,

    I am using Webmin for  Windows on Windows 2003/2008 .
    Active Perl version 5.8.9
    I want to know how can we support long passwords (more than 8 characters in length) in Webmin on Windows.
    I tried using the Webmin Configuration's Authentication screen by selecting the _"Use MD5 encryption for Webmin passwords (allows long passwords)" _option.
    But got the Error as below:
    " Failed to save authentication : MD5 encryption cannot be used, as Perl does not have built-in crypt MD5 support on your system "

    I am not sure how to fix this issue.
    Any suggestions??

    Thanks!!
