BlowFish Encryption Doesnt work with Openfire!

Hi All,


If trying to generate my own user accounts for openfire. I need to encrypt the passwords, and so I use Blowfish to do this. Im using the Bouncycastle library for ASP.NET.


                         IBlockCipher blowFishCipher = new BlowfishEngine();

                        PaddedBufferedBlockCipher cipher = new PaddedBufferedBlockCipher(blowFishCipher);


                        ASCIIEncoding enc = new ASCIIEncoding();

                        byte[] keyByte = enc.GetBytes("thekey"); //key same as in passwordKey on openfire


                        cipher.Init(true, new KeyParameter(keyByte));


                        byte[] passwordBytes = enc.GetBytes("userpassword");


                        byte[] encryptPasswordBtyes = cipher.DoFinal(passwordBytes);

                        string encryptedPassword = Convert.ToBase64String(encryptPasswordBtyes);//enc.GetString(encryptPasswordBty es);


The problem i see is that in openfire the encryted passwords look like this b589c106c34e3da923b7cd8c0125b4a46a36a6384bebb874 whereas mine are coming out like this zHlWW/RqB2c= . And if i try and login with the new account it says the password is wrong.


Any ideas? things i should be aware of?
