Subject Re: encrypting passwords

I could use htpasswd in a perl script on the server to do this
that is true.  I would prefer to have a way to perform the
encryption on the client side and not pass the password accross
the net cleartext.

the htpasswd tool could be used to do that.  Its a support program
included in the distribution.  I assume that you are talking about a
.htpasswd file.
