SIM Transactions

UPDATE: has gotten back to me. They sent me a link which had the following information:

Response Reason Code: 103

Response Reason Text: A valid fingerprint, or transaction key is required for this transaction.

Integration Team Suggestions: This error is generated when your account is in "Password-Required Mode" and you are not sending a valid password, transaction key or hash fingerprint with your transaction request, which is a recommended security measure.

Please consider the following details when encountering this error:

If you are using SIM, make sure you are using a valid transaction key to generate and send a fingerprint hash to us along with your transaction request.
If you are using AIM please make sure you are posting the gateway defined field x_tran_key.
If you are using a third party shopping cart which uses AIM and are receiving this error, please check with your shopping cart provider to ask if your application can pass the transaction key to the Authorize.Net payment gateway.
If you are using an older Authorize.Net account and you submit a password instead of a transaction key with your transactions, you may experience this error. Please ensure that you are posting a transaction key instead.
Some shopping carts, for backwards compatibility with older connection methods, may provide the means to submit both a transaction key and a password. You should not use both the transaction key and the password simultaneously; doing so may also result in this error. We recommend using the transaction key instead of the password whenever possible, as transaction keys tend to be more secure than passwords. In such a situation, please leave the password field blank

If the shopping cart has a field for the password but no field for the transaction key, please put the transaction key in the password field. Our system will recognize and validate the transaction key properly.

Also, while most shopping cart software will have a field for the transaction key, password, or both, some software may not. Please contact your shopping cart provider for details on how to upgrade to a more secure version of your shopping cart software. In an emergency, you may submit transactions without a transaction key, by disabling Password-Required Mode in your account. You may find details in our Password-Required Mode knowledge base document.

as I have been searching this forum I noticed the fingerprint hash has been mentioned a lot.

Which file has the fingerprint hash in it? What should I make sure the line of code for that is?
