Does anyone know how to formulate the connection parameter for Password when MD5 encryption is required by a PGSQL server?

Password encryption

You cannot set authentication method at client side
as it sets on PostgreSql server in pg_hba.conf file by server administrator,
For each user PostgreSQLDirect .NET uses automatically method of encryption that
specified for this user in pg_hba.conf file.

Thanks for your help.

I was wondering if it would be necessary to use some kind of MD5 hashing algorithm when defining the password in VB code, but after further testing, it appears as though the PgSqlConnection object handles this.
