Mac Caching Wrong Password, but Where
December 10, 2010 10:18 AM Subscribe
My Mac (10.3.9) seems to be automatically providing an outdated network password to my work network. Since the password is consistently wrong, it's causing my new, working password to lock up. Where might that password be stored? I've already removed anything from the key chain.

I'm using Classic to load Outlook 2001 to access our exhange server. I removed any password from the classic key chain and the os X key chain.
This happens whether Firefox launches or not, so it's not a password saved in the browser. This happens whether I launch Outlook or not. Basically just booting the machine with an active network connection is causing it to authenticate to the network with a bad password.
I tried looking in Activity Monitor, but didn't see anything that was immediately obvious to me (not that I'd be 100% sure what to look for in there). I tried putting Little Snitch on the machine, but a version that can run on such an old OS (10.3.9) doesn't seem to report as well as the newer versions of Little Snitch.
I'm stumped as to where else a password may be cached. Does anybody have any ideas?
