ADDP password encryption?

0 votes
I needed the 64-bit version of ADDP so I rewrote the ADDP.DLL, but I cannot figure out what kind of encryption the password uses for the set commands. Everything else works.

Anyone know how the encryption works for the passwords?

Thanks,

I looked at the sample, it is just a sample of how to use the client library. I need information on how the client library works internally with the password encryption to do commands.

Have you looked at the client library source? It should give you some clues. I had a quick look at it and the Rabbit version does not seem to implement the encrypted passwords but it does mention in the comments that the encrypted password option is based on MD5 challenge/response.

Where is that source? All I can find is addp.c which is an example file on how to use the library.

Assuming you installed DC in the default directory it should be in c:dcrabbit_10.66\Lib\Rabbit4000\tcpip\addp.lib
The Dynamic C Lib files are actually source code and can be viewed with a normal text editor.

I found it. It is the host implementation minus the password encryption. It does say MD5. Maybe with that clue and WireShark I can figure it out.
