Yes it's possible, but there's a hard part : you have to implement DES and MD4 in Rebol which is not really a simple thing to do with Rebol scalar types. Their bit size is lesser than the C or Java equivalent, resulting in a painfull work to adapt the algos in Rebol. The 'Bignumber component should be the solution for such works as soon as RT will release some docs on it. The http scheme should also be modified to work with M$ Proxy Server, because MPS doesn't strictly obey to the http standard. (as always with M$!) Any volonteer to make a tunnel through the Death Star ? ;) Regards, DocKimbel.
