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)
Cant make much out of the most of them.
0xA2 can be very long or many small ones
The following reserved bytes are used:
Hope you have some information for me.
