Dovecot + Sieve and Smartsieve

Hello, Im trying to make dovecot work with seive plugin and smartsieve, but seems that it doesnt work. Everything is build, no error, dovecot is seeing the plugin, but when i try to connect through the browser to smartsieve just get an error: Login failed! Please try again.

I've check the loges and nothing, does anyone know whats the deal!?

The dovecot plugin does not provide a sieve server, it just gives dovecot the ability to understand sieve scripts and perform the actions in them.

You need to install a sieve server if you want to use smartsieve to manage your sieve scripts.

Done that, I have installed managesieve, but still doesnt work, same error, but in the logs seems everything fine.

Seems that all of the web based sieve managing applications work only with cyrus sieve, but not with dovecot sieve.

Does anyone know how to resolv this, like I said SmartSieve doesnt work with managesieve.
