I am creating a front end to a perl web program that is written in Perl. The password in the Perl program where encrypted using the crypt method.

I need to know how I can encrypt a password in visual Basic to act the same way that the crypt method does so that I can compare my encrypted password in my VB program with that in the MySQL database.

This is important, so please don't say it can't be done. :D
