Using RPC-XML in WinXP, can't login..:-(

I finaly realized that smugmug provides this API (thanks, Ben!).
However, when I tried to pursue this opportunity, I hit a roadblock right at the start: I cannot login.:dunno

I'm using win32 app written in Delphi6 with Indy/SSL running on Windows XP Pro.
Here's my app''s log: (email and password ARE correct - I copied them to smugmug login text windows and could login just fine). Sorry, had to replace angle brackets with "{" ones, otherwise forum engine swallows them al. BTW, any know way around that? I tried &lt and &gt, but to no effect..:-(:scratch

Seems like all the low-level stuff (SSL, and such) works just fine, however I'm getting the same reposnse over and over.

What am I doing wrong?:bow
Thank you!

    Found it!!!

    This was my first experience with RPC-XML, so I misread the specs.
    It turned out that instead of providing actual names for parameters (e.g. "EmailAddress") all parameters are indeed position-based and also nameless, so I had to use actual "value" word and leave the names out (for a hardened delphi/c/c++ veteran this was kinda an unexpected thing, but hey, I've learned something new!)

    Juts in case, here's my working version:
    [PHP]
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <methodCall>
    <methodName>loginWithPassword</methodName>
    <params>
    <param>
    <value>EMAIL</value>
    </param>
    <param>
    <value>PASSWORD</value>
    </param>
    <param>
    <value>1.0</value>
    </param>
    </params>
    </methodCall>
    [/PHP]
    Hope this will help somebody!
    Cheers! API, here I come!
