vbscript to create object with octetlist property

When writing a vbscript to create an application object, I encountered a small problem. How do I read/write octet lists in vbscript.

Can you tell me what should be on the place of the questionmarks in order to write the octet list value.

Set oNwDir = WScript.CreateObject("NWDirLib.NWDirCtrl.1")
oNWDir.FullName="NDS:\\tree\company\context\container"
set oMyEntry = oNWDir.Entries.Add("App:Application","AppObjName")
oMyEntry.SetFieldValue "App:Caption","Test App Obj"
oMyEntry.SetFieldValue "App:Path","203437204E554C4C20"
oMyEntry.LoadFieldValueFromFile "App:Startup Script","c:\temp\sscript.txt"
oMyEntry.?????? "App:Fs Rights Path","octet list data"
oMyEntry.Update

If you are not familiar with Netware, you could do the same with an LDAP:// thing. Problem is just that the "octet list" can not be set or get with SetFieldValue or LoadFieldValueFromFile.

The directory object should probably be handled using other object, not the DirCtrl since it is of no relevance for the directory itself.

Maybe you should try "NWAppAdmLib.NWAppAdmCtrl.1"

However to read object data:
Set octetList = oMyEntry.GetFieldValue("App:Fs Rights Path")
theArray = octetList.Data
For i= LBound(theArray) to UBound(theArray)
  ' theArray(i) holds each element
Next

Set octetList = oMyEntry.GetFieldValue("App:Fs Rights Path")
returns the error:
can not get or set this field
and "NWAppAdmLib.NWAppAdmCtrl.1" does not have a property or method to approach the required object

If you can do it in VBA it would be nice as well
