Thnaks for your help on this -
It does not seem to change anything -
I don't use md5 I use basic unix crypt function (please no jokes :)
so obviously I had trouble at first -
so I simply changed that line to correspond to the encryption that is being use - lol - fantastically enough I was able to log in. . .
I know you said you didn't test the script so it is just a template - so that must be the reason it has not changed anything - but at least I got it (or you got it) to authenticate through the script - so the next step is just getting the script to work -
The one question that really stands out though is how can we get it to authenticate through the script - which means it is working - and still get the same reaction?
