Ruby IMAP with Cyrus server

Hi All,
I’m trying to authenticate to my imap server using the Net::IMAP
library.
i’m doing this:

require ‘net/imap’
imap = Net::IMAP.new(‘my.server.com’)
#i get an imap object back
imap.authenticate(‘LOGIN’,‘user’,‘password’)
and at that point there’s a pause then i get:
Net::IMAP::NoResponseError: encryption needed to use mechanism

my imap server is set to accept these sasl authentications:
plain login

and my cyrus log says this:
LOGIN [SASL(-16): encryption needed to use mechanism: security flags do
not match required]

any ideas how to enable the correct authentication methods on this?

many thanks for reading,
cheers.

You probably need to use an SSL connection. LOGIN sends a
recoverable password.
