Exim : Failt to authorise through command line


Hi

I have trying to connect to my Exim 4.62 through commandline to send email,

what I did is connect to exim mail server using
Code:
#nc 192.168.1.185 25
220-vikasumit.Server ESMTP Exim 4.62 #9 Tue, 06 Jun 2006 13:06:22 +0530 
220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited, 
220 and/or bulk e-mail.
EHLO
250-vikasumit.Server Hello  [192.168.1.185]
250-SIZE 52428800
250-PIPELINING
250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN
250 HELP
AUTH LOGIN sumit:localdomains.com password
501 Invalid base64 data
I didn't understand why I am getting this error 501
I check exim authentictor on server and found this

Code:
[root@vikasumit home]# exim -bP authenticators 

fixed_plain authenticator:
driver = plaintext
public_name = PLAIN
server_advertise_condition = 
server_debug_print = 
server_mail_auth_condition = 
server_set_id = $2
no_client_ignore_invalid_base64
client_send = 
server_condition = ${perl{checkuserpass}{$1}{$2}{$3}}
server_prompts = :

fixed_login authenticator:
driver = plaintext
public_name = LOGIN
server_advertise_condition = 
server_debug_print = 
server_mail_auth_condition = 
server_set_id = $1
no_client_ignore_invalid_base64
client_send = 
server_condition = ${perl{checkuserpass}{$1}{$2}}
server_prompts = Username:: : Password::

If you know I do authorizatoin through PERL script (like cPanel does, infact the above perl script is of cpanel only).

Please guide

Thanks
