Script to check the validity of password


I have to validate the passwords for 100s of unix users across several servers. I have the list of unix users and servers with passwrods.

How can I check whether a password is correct or not using a single shell script?

Note : I do not have root privileges on any server. All the servers are Sun Solaris.
