mode=login&user=jingoro&password= . . .
And it keeps telling me Invalid Password. (I've checked that I'm using my correct password a dozen times) Any clues? Must we use hpassword now?
Rumor is there are other protocols than /flat . . . any truth to this? If so, they aren't documented in the developer's area.
Problem solved. I should not send a CRLF pair following the password. Thought I'd tried that, but just tried it again and got some success! Thanks all who put up with me.
The documentation for 'login' isn't very clear on the format for the hpassword entry. I've just verified independently that you can pass the MD5 hash as a string of hexadecimal digits, rather than %xx encoded character-bytes. Hence:
Just thought that might help someone someday. I had to use trial and error to figure it out.
