A bit of background.

I have SugarCRM. My data for sugarcrm is in a progress database. Apatar can move the data. One problem though. sugarcrm requires a key. I've posted the code below. Apatar is open source, so I grabbed the regular sugarcrm template and created a sugarcrmldap template.

The encryption is where I run into a problem.  I've been trying to convert it into java. I know what encryption does, but the coding specifics between ASE/DSE/3DES, i need some help with. Basically, I'm trying to convert the $ldap_hash line into the the same equivalent java code. I can see it's using 3DES, but I've seen some very very different ways of implementing this. I has something going but I was running into an illegal key size. Couldn't figure that out so I'm retreating a bit and looking for help.
require_once('./path/to/nusoap.php');
 
 $soap_client = new soapclient('http://someurl.com/sugar/soap.php?wsdl');
 
 $user_name = 'matt';
 $user_password = 'mygoodsecret123';
 $app_name = 'myniceprogram';
 
 $key = 'abc123';  // LDAP Key as entered in Sugar
 $key = substr(md5($key),0,24);
 $iv = 'password';  // note that this is the word password, not the user's password or hash...
 $ldap_hash = bin2hex(mcrypt_cbc(MCRYPT_3DES, $key, $user_password, MCRYPT_ENCRYPT, $iv));
 $soap_client->call('login',array('user_auth'=>array('user_name'=>$user_name, 'password'=>$ldap_hash,'version'=>'.1'), 'application_name'=>$app_name));

I might be totally wrong on this, but I seem to recall that the md5 function is specific to php and as I learned different in mysql. So, I'm thinking it might also be different in java. try echoing the key after the md5 in both java and php and see if they're the same

 $key = substr(md5($key),0,24);
echo $key;

Yes, afaicr 3DES uses a 128-bit key, so it'll need to be padded
