    I deleted my other post.... my apologies. I was just trying to understand what you were trying to do.

    The only way I know to understand the alorithm in question though, is to reverse-engineer it and see what it is doing....it's pretty much like trying to make a keygenerator to register software...(hence my questions)

    Ummm..well, first thing you need to know that in most cases it is illegal to reverse-engineer software (unless it is open source, of course)..And it's not something you are going to learn just reading a few books or tuts...

    What I would do if I were you is search for some "educational only" sites that teach reverse engineering. Something like this: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&i...=Google+Search

    Just remember though, use your knowledge for positive purposes only. Don't get sucked in by the darkside

    There's script-kiddie stuff out there to help you reverse-engineer stuff and break passwords... just use google and look for hack + crack + your messanger program you're trying to reverse engineer, and download the programs that come up. Most of them include wonderful little backdoor programs and nasty little trojans... so do it on a box you don't mind reformating. I've found that even the most obscure programs out there have been cracked by people eager to get a backdoor into many people's systems.

    I think what he is trying to do is make a program he has written, work with another program that has an encrypted segment..he plainly stated that he is not trying to crack anything...or did I read something wrong?

    this is ture it i do not want to crack any program,

    i am making my own client for a chat server, i have all of the code done its.

    sending the password when you logon with winsock is the bit that getts encrypted

    it sends the password you type in a text box encrpted so i need to make the same encryption so i can send the passwords from my client with the same encryption

    i do not want to crack any programs

    Here's a set of questions for you:
    1) What language are you using?
    2) Are you trying to make a client for an Instant Messaging service? If so, what service?
    3) Are you trying to plug into an existing network (irc, IM, etc) or have you coded your own protocol?
    4) If you're coding your own protocol, could we have the bit of the server/client code responsible for encrypting/hashing the password?
    5) If you're plugging into an existing network, which one?

    Answer most of these questions, and someone will be able to help you.

    Cheers,
