    hi..I'm working on a project that requires files to be password
    protected on a UNIX based site. The people that own the web site want
    to be able to change the password every so often. Unfortunately, I
    have restricted access only to FTP so I really can't log in to any kind
    of Administrative Console or Admin Panel and see if there are folders
    that can be password protected and then have passwords changed on them.
    The people I'm contracted to work on the site for aren't the most
    computer savvy people though....so..my question is:
    Is there a user friendly way of password protecting a folder on a UNIX
    based site? Thanks in advanced for any response.
