Hi!  The tool doesn't take any arguments.  Did you read an earlier
post about this:

Did you create the password file as described in the URL above?

I now verified that the steps I explained earlier works fine with
GnuTLS 1.6.1 under Windows XP.

To use the ex-*-srp examples, you'll need to invoke:

C:\> srptool -u user -p tpasswd -c tpasswd.conf
Enter password: [Type 'pass']

Then invoke './ex-serv-srp' in the same directory as the tpasswd*
files are in, and then invoke ./ex-client-srp'.

Or change the username/password in the source code.
