I have upgraded my NT4 domain and Web site to Windows 2000. Now when I select "user must change password at next logon," there is no prompt for user to change their password when they access through the Internet. Those users access using SSL with certificate. Thank you.

The "user must change password at next logon" option is only helpful when users log on interactively at a console. This was true for NT4 also. Your Web application will need to know how to recognize that the user's password needs to be changed and prompt them for it. Unfortunately, there's nothing built into Windows 2000 to allow this to happen automatically with a browser.
