ADC: Documentation

Post by Toast » 28 Apr 2008, 07:23

ADC is a text protocol for a client-server network similar to Neo-Modus' Direct Connect (NMDC). The goal is to create a simple protocol that doesn't require much effort neither in hub nor client, and is yet extensible. It addresses some of the issues in the NMDC protocol, but not all.

The same protocol structure is used both for client-hub and client-client communication. This document is split into two parts; the first shows the structure of the protocol, while the second implements a specific system using this structure. ADC stands for anything you would like it to stand for; Advanced Direct Connect is the first neutral thing that springs to mind =).

Many ideas for the protocol come from Jan Vidar Krey's DCTNG draft. Major contributors include Dustin Brody, Walter Doekes, Timmo Stange, Fredrik Ullner, Fredrik Stenberg and others. Jon Hess contributed the original Direct Connect idea through the Neo-Modus Direct Connect client / hub.
