Here is a small guide on how to compile and use the plPythonPack and plFileSecure tools.

Prerequisites

You should have compiled the CWE Client (changeset 8 or higher) as it is described in cjkelly1's tutorial once. (Link)

Compile them

plFileSecure

  1. Open [CWE]\MOULOpenSourceClientPlugin\Plasma20\MsDevProjects\Plasma\Apps\plFileSecure\plFileSecure.vcproj with VS2003.
  2. Change the configuration to "Release".
  3. Right click on the Project and select "Build". Save the sln file, if VS asks you.
  4. Everything should work and the plFileSecure.exe should be in the Release folder.


plPythonPack (the same as for plFileSecure)

  1. Open [CWE]\MOULOpenSourceClientPlugin\Plasma20\MsDevProjects\Plasma\Apps\plPythonPack\plPythonPack.vcproj with VS2003.
  2. Change the configuration to "Release".
  3. Right click on the Project and select "Build". Save the sln file, if VS asks you.
  4. Everything should work and the plPythonPack.exe should be in the Release folder.

Use them

You will get more information by running plFileSecure -h or plPythonPack -h in the command prompt, but here's a small overview.

For packing a complete python.pak file you have to copy the whole Python source into a new folder. You can use the Python files from Cyan's scripts. (Link) Now, you can run the plPythonPack.exe in the new Python folder or run plPythonPack <PythonFolder> in the command prompt. The final python.pak file should be in the Python folder.


To encrypt files (e.g. for the MOSS auth server) you have to put your encryption.key to the folder where you are running plFileSecure. Then, open a command prompt and type:

plFileSecure <directory> <file-ending>

e.g.: plFileSecure . pak

Finally, your files are "notthedroids"/ntd encrypted.
