hey guys. i was just wondering if anybody knew how to use openssl? the site is http://www.openssl.org well its a program to encrypt and decrypt text. the thing i can't figure out how to use it properly. i've tried the examples but they dont work. what i have to do is:

Using OpenSSL, calculate the base64 encoding of your student number - use the eight numeric characters of your student number padded with leading zeros if necessary. Your answer should represent the encoding of exactly the eight characters of your student number - no more and no less. my student no is 04698908 and was wondering if anyone could tell my what to type into command prompt.

also another part asks for me to decrypt a file using my password which is my student number. i was told that i had to convert my student no though but dunno what to. any help is much appreciated. thanks in advance :)
