Hello all,

I was wondering if it is known bitcomet is using the reserved bytes. I
was sniffing a torrent while downloading it using Bitcomet (and
Ethereal for sniffing) and i noticed some wierd (Ethereal didn't know
the message types) messages. For example:

0030   40 b0 5d e7 00 00 00 00 00 25 a2 00 00 00 00 00  @.]......%......
0040   00 00 1c 65 78 62 63 00 38 4c 4f 52 44 3e 96 4b  ...exbc.8LORD>.K
0050   39 3b 3f 08 95 4a 19 9b f6 c0 18 4c b9 00 00     9;?..J.....L...

This is type: 0xA2

And it seems to me it's a way of exchanging peers.

There are some other unknow types:

0xA0 (Has a list of message types)
0xA3
0xA4
0xAC
0xA1

Cant make much out of the most of them.

0xA2 can be very long or many small ones

The following reserved bytes are used:

Hex: 6578000...etc

Bin: 01100101011110000000.....etc

Hope you have some information for me.
