thingy

(no subject)

okay.. this is probably one of the more stupid questions ever posted here (and even then i'm not sure if this is the right place to ask!) but..
well i guess there is something in the protocol that i don't understand. i'm just starting with a client, and i cannot even figure out how to login properly!
if i send:
mode=login&user=test&password=test
like the protocol page says, everything works fine! however, if i replace the username and password with a 'real' one (ie. mine) it says "invalid password" ... i've tried this with multiple people's accounts and it never works. i -have- to be missing something here, and i'll probably feel stupid when someone what's wrong but... what AM i doing incorrectly?
