I have an endpoint that works fine with a plain text password. I would like to convert to md5. This is for outbound only. I checked with the ITSP and they said they support md5. I copied the auth section from the wiki:
type = auth
But it doesn’t work. I’m trying to use the command “echo -n “STRING” | md5sum” to generate the hash.
- Do I need to use a different utility to generate the string?
- The wiki shows “username:realm:password” for input to the md5sum utility to create the md5 string. Is that the correct input? I’m unsure of what to use for the realm.
- the wiki also shows a “realm=” directive for the auth section but does not show its use in the example??
