Send password over TCP connection

Hi all,

I have a program that serves client programs. The server has a login
password, which has to be used by each client for logging in. So, when
the client connects, it sends a string with a password, which is then
validated on the server side. The problem is obvious: anyone can get
the password just sniffing the network.

How can I solve this?

Daniel
