I need help converting a, for me, complex php function into C# code.

PHP Function:
function ssha($password){
            mt_srand((double)microtime()*1000000);
            $salt = pack("CCCC", mt_rand(), mt_rand(), mt_rand(), mt_rand());
            $hash = base64_encode(pack("H*", sha1($password . $salt)) . $salt);
            $hash = str_replace('+', '@', $hash);
            $hash = str_replace('/', '.', $hash);
            return $hash;
}

My own C# code (that doesn't work):
public static string GetLegatoHash(string Password)
        {
            // mt_srand((double)microtime()*1000000);
            int seconds = DateTime.Now.Second;
            Random rnd = new Random(seconds);

            // $salt = pack("CCCC", mt_rand(), mt_rand(), mt_rand(), mt_rand());
            byte[] data = new byte[] { (byte)rnd.Next(), (byte)rnd.Next(), (byte)rnd.Next(), (byte)rnd.Next() };
            string salt = data[0].ToString() + data[1].ToString() + data[2].ToString() + data[3].ToString();
            
            // sha1($password . $salt)
            ASCIIEncoding UE = new ASCIIEncoding();
            byte[] HashValue, MessageBytes = UE.GetBytes((Password + salt));
            HashAlgorithm SHhash = new SHA1Managed();

            HashValue = SHhash.ComputeHash(data);

            // pack("H*", sha1($password . $salt))
            List<byte> hashdata = new List<byte>();
            foreach (byte b in HashValue)
            {
                byte nibbleLow = (byte)(b & 0x0F);
                byte nibbleHigh = (byte)((b & 0xF0) >> 4);

                hashdata.Add(nibbleHigh);
                hashdata.Add(nibbleLow);
            }

            foreach (byte b in data)
            {
                byte nibbleLow = (byte)(b & 0x0F);
                byte nibbleHigh = (byte)((b & 0xF0) >> 4);

                hashdata.Add(nibbleHigh);
                hashdata.Add(nibbleLow);
            }

            // base64_encode(pack("H*", sha1($password . $salt)) . $salt);
            byte[] toEncodeAsBytes = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes(string.Join("", hashdata.ToArray()) + salt);
            string hash = System.Convert.ToBase64String(toEncodeAsBytes);

            //$hash = str_replace('+', '@', $hash);
            //$hash = str_replace('/', '.', $hash);
            hash.Replace("+", "@").Replace("/", ".");

            return hash;
        }

i am sure there is no tool to convert php to c#, however i have modified the code in c# as:-

public static string GetLegatoHash(string Password)
        {
            // mt_srand((double)microtime()*1000000);
            int seconds = DateTime.Now.Second;
            Random rnd = new Random(seconds);

            // $salt = pack("CCCC", mt_rand(), mt_rand(), mt_rand(), mt_rand());
            byte[] data = new byte[] { (byte)rnd.Next(), (byte)rnd.Next(), (byte)rnd.Next(), (byte)rnd.Next() };
            string salt = data[0].ToString() + data[1].ToString() + data[2].ToString() + data[3].ToString();

            // sha1($password . $salt)
            ASCIIEncoding UE = new ASCIIEncoding();
            byte[] HashValue, MessageBytes = UE.GetBytes((Password + salt));
            HashAlgorithm SHhash = new SHA1Managed();

            HashValue = SHhash.ComputeHash(data);

            // pack("H*", sha1($password . $salt))
            List<byte> hashdata = new List<byte>();
            foreach (byte b in HashValue)
            {
                byte nibbleLow = (byte)(b & 0x0F);
                byte nibbleHigh = (byte)((b & 0xF0) >> 4);

                hashdata.Add(nibbleHigh);
                hashdata.Add(nibbleLow);
            }

            foreach (byte b in data)
            {
                byte nibbleLow = (byte)(b & 0x0F);
                byte nibbleHigh = (byte)((b & 0xF0) >> 4);

                hashdata.Add(nibbleHigh);
                hashdata.Add(nibbleLow);
            }

            // base64_encode(pack("H*", sha1($password . $salt)) . $salt);
            
            byte[] toEncodeAsBytes = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(salt);
            hashdata.AddRange(toEncodeAsBytes);

            string hash = System.Convert.ToBase64String(hashdata.ToArray());

            //$hash = str_replace('+', '@', $hash);
            //$hash = str_replace('/', '.', $hash);
            hash.Replace("+", "@").Replace("/", ".");

            return hash;
        }

Sorry, no go on that one. But probably a good modification though.

Any other ideas?

Well, the problem is that it still isn't working. The C# code doesn't produce the same output as the php code does.

The challenge.... is that I don't know enough php to make the conversion on my own.

Solved it!

Here is the working C# code:
        public static string GetLegatoHash(string Password)
        {
            // mt_srand((double)microtime()*1000000);
            int seconds = DateTime.Now.Second;
            Random rnd = new Random(seconds);

            // $salt = pack("CCCC", mt_rand(), mt_rand(), mt_rand(), mt_rand());
            byte[] data = new byte[] { (byte)rnd.Next(), (byte)rnd.Next(), (byte)rnd.Next(), (byte)rnd.Next() };
            string salt = data[0].ToString() + data[1].ToString() + data[2].ToString() + data[3].ToString();
            
            // sha1($password . $salt)
            ASCIIEncoding UE = new ASCIIEncoding();
            byte[] HashValue, MessageBytes = UE.GetBytes(Password + salt);
            HashAlgorithm SHhash = new SHA1Managed();
            HashValue = SHhash.ComputeHash(MessageBytes);

            // pack("H*", sha1($password . $salt))
            StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
            for (int i = 0; i < HashValue.Length; i++)
            {
                sb.Append(HashValue[i].ToString("X2"));
            }
            byte[] PackHBytes = PackH(sb.ToString());

            // base64_encode(pack("H*", sha1($password . $salt)) . $salt);
            byte[] SaltBytes = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(salt);

            byte[] FinalBytes = new byte[PackHBytes.Length + SaltBytes.Length];
            System.Buffer.BlockCopy(PackHBytes, 0, FinalBytes, 0, PackHBytes.Length);
            System.Buffer.BlockCopy(SaltBytes, 0, FinalBytes, PackHBytes.Length, SaltBytes.Length);

            string hash = System.Convert.ToBase64String(FinalBytes);

            //$hash = str_replace('+', '@', $hash);
            //$hash = str_replace('/', '.', $hash);
            hash = hash.Replace("+", "@").Replace("/", ".");

            return hash;
        }

        private static byte[] PackH(string hex)
        {
            if ((hex.Length % 2) == 1) hex += '0';
            byte[] bytes = new byte[hex.Length / 2];
            for (int i = 0; i < hex.Length; i += 2)
            {
                bytes[i / 2] = Convert.ToByte(hex.Substring(i, 2), 16);
            }
            return bytes;
        }
