    Has anyone successfully created ws-security headers using a VB client?

    My web service authenticates users correctly when I use a .Net client
    using WSE, however I am having problems constructing the correct
    header using VB6.

    I have a VB class that implements IHeaderHandler which I then set on
    the SOAPClient HeaderHandler property. This works fine for plain text
    passwords. However setting the Password element Type attribute to
    wsse:passwordDigest and passing the password digest just doesn't seem
    to work. I have tried numerous ways of creating the password hash
    from my nonce, creation date and password, however the digest always
    seems to end up twice as long as the equivalent produced using a .Net
    client with WSE. Can anyone help?

    Regards
