need some help with perl md5 response

Hey everyone!

I'm having some problems implementing the challenge login method.

I'm getting the appropriate response from getchallenge. I make my MD5 hexes and then post, but I'm getting an invalid password error. However, the plain text logs in fine. Here is the source code:

$md5_pass = $md5->md5_hex($pass);

$auth_challenge = $server_response_hash{'challenge'};
$auth_method = "challenge";
$auth_response = $md5->md5_hex($auth_challenge . $md5_pass);

Any thoughts?
