Auth Challenge troubles...

I'm having a problem with getting the challenge method to work; in fact, I can't get it to work at all.

I've studied the protocol documentation and tried looking at the perl example, but I'm not all that familiar with perl.

For right now, in the first stages of my client development, I'm starting off with the flat protocol. I have the client logging in with the clear text, but I don't know how to do the challenge method.

What exactly am I supposed to send to the server to issue the challenge? And how is it sent?

"Essentially, you generate a challenge by issuing a blank request to the getchallenge method. If your method call is successful you're given:"

How is that blank request to the getchallenge method issued?

Thanks.
