I need generate passwords for use with .htaccess in VB.  So far, i have only found the DES algorythem.  I need either the code to encrypt a password with a given salt, or code that will generate the DES key, and DES salt which i could then feed into the DES class I found.

I've searched high and low for open source crypt in VB.  Source is available in C, but not an easy translate.
