Possible Duplicates:
Password manager for multiple computers?
Cross-platform centralized desktop password manager

Do any of you know a password manager, that would maybe look a bit like KeePass, but client/server. I wanna be able to simply install it on the user's computer and he's always up-to-date.

It is meant to manage ssh/ftp/mysql/http, so it would be nice to have an integrated launcher

Are you sure you're willing to store your credentials on someone else's server without knowing what that person might do with it? – BloodPhilia Jun 29 '10 at 17:45
How would KeePass with its database on the server fall short for you? – JRobert Jun 29 '10 at 21:02

Plain text files stored in a TrueCrypt file, saved in a DropBox directory.

KeePass, it's very popular and has versions for Windows, Linux, Mac, iPhone, Blackberry, etc, etc, etc. Here's their download page

edit: to sync the keypass database between multiple computers you could use any of a multitude of file sync programs. I would recommend drop box though, as it has worked for me with KeyPass.

It's called KeePass, not keypass. – Hello71 Jun 29 '10 at 21:56
Thanks Hello, it's so similar it's easy to confuse. – Daisetsu Jul 1 '10 at 16:43

I'm partial to flat text files, myself. PGP/GPG encrypt them to the group who needs access if you can't trust their machines to keep it safe.

It doesn't get much more portable than text.

1Password is very popular with the Mac-crowd. The OSX, iPhone & iPad versions are very mature. The windows version is currently in beta.

I have my keychain on my dropbox and never had problems with sharing it.

On my linux box I use the fact that the keychain is just a zip file, which actually provides html based access to your passwords.
