Netscape Web Server and Delphi CGI
Posted on 1997-05-05
I am writing some CGI programs in Delphi for use on the Netscape Enterprise and FastTrack Servers.
One of these CGI programs needs to update the Netscape's USER database.
Netscape comes with a command line utility called MKUSER which will add the user information into the database for me, but, I have to pass it an already encrypted password as one of the parameters.
How do I encrypt this password so that Netscape will understand it and be able to decrypt it?
Netscape has a .LIB file that has the routines to encrypt and decrypt the password. Can I use the .LIB file somehow from within Delphi 2.0? If so, How?
