== Backward compatibility ==
 +
 
 +
The modstring is still send via hello(answer) packets but '''only''' if the remote client is using a mod and does not support the mod prot extension to maintain backward compatibility. Usage of CT_MOD_VERSION is proposed to move it to the mod protocol. A mod using the modbit MUST identify itself either via CT_MOD_VERSION in the hello(answer) packets or via modstring in the modinfo packet.
 +
'''NOTE:''' a mod that uses extensions but refuses to identify itself will most likely be considered a bad mod by some antileecher systems
 +
 
 +
The proposed check to use would be like
 +
<pre>
 +
void CUpDownClient::SendHelloTypePacket(CSafeMemFile* data)
 +
{
 +
...
 +
...
 +
uint32 tagcount = 6;
 +
 
 +
if( theApp.clientlist->GetBuddy() && theApp.IsFirewalled() )
 +
tagcount += 2;
 +
 
 +
//>>> MODPROT::Send Modstring to old mods only
 +
const bool bSendModString = !SupportsModProt() && (!m_strModVersion.IsEmpty() || !m_pszUsername);
 +
if(bSendModString)
 +
++tagcount;
 +
//<<< MODPROT::Send Modstring to old mods only
 +
 
 +
data->WriteUInt32(tagcount);
 +
...
 +
...
 +
tagMuleVersion.WriteTagToFile(data);
 +
 
 +
//>>> MODPROT::Send Modstring to old mods only
 +
if(bSendModString)
 +
{
 +
CTag tagMod(CT_MOD_VERSION, L"My Mod String");
 +
tagMod.WriteTagToFile(data);
 +
}
 +
//<<< MODPROT::Send Modstring to old mods only
 +
 
 +
uint32 dwIP;
 +
uint16 nPort;
 +
...
 +
...
 +
</pre>
 +
and similar for the info packet.
  
Modstring is still send and replied in hello packet to maintain backward compatibility. However a opcode for modstring will be defined for those who also want to move it to the mod protocol. A mod using the modbit MUST identify itself. (A mod that uses extensions but refuses to identify itslef CAN be considered a bad mod by some antileecher systems)

Sources must be published within 3 months after claiming a tag.  
  
A mod can claim only up to 4 tags, BUT with capabilty bit in a tag this should be MORE than enough! If you need more you are dowin something wrong probably. Note that also string tags are available that are not regulated.

The range 0x01 - 0x1F is completely reserved.
  
only tags in the rage from 0x20 (space) - 0x7e are to be used in this version of modprot.
+
Tags in the range from 0x20 - 0x7E are reserved for major features, possible objections can be:
 +
#Modder uses too many tags (if you need more than 5 tags you are most likely doing something wrong. Note that string tags are also available - those are not regulated)
 +
#Utterly useless or unimplementable feature (no other mod will ever use it)
 +
#Illegal feature (should be clear)
  
TODO: add more detailded cescriptoin of these tags.  
+
The range 0x7F-FF is open and you can claim any free tag you want, only objection can be the usage of too many tags (e.g. someone claims to need a range from 0x80 to 0xAF).

[edit] Under construction

THIS IS NOT FINAL.. feel free to edit.

[edit] Introduction

The Modprot is needed for more clean protocol extensions by eMule modders....

The main idea is to set a bit in CT_EMULE_MISCOPTIONS2 in the initial hello packet. If that bit is set and received by an eMule mod that is capable of processing extensions, then that mod will send the options it is capable of in the response and the first client will also send back the protocol extensions it is capable of.

Important:

Clients that are not capable of processing the mod protocol (like official eMule/aMule) will not set the mod bit in CT_EMULE_MISCOPTIONS2 and will never receive extended protocol information.

[edit] Documentation

All mod communication is to be done over the OP_MODPROT/OP_MODPACKEDPROT. When a hello(answer) with a set mod bit is received the ConnectionEstablished has to be delayed. Instead of that the mod info packet with the opcode OP_MODINFOPACKET is to be sent. ConnectionEstablished will be triggered when the mod info packet is received.

A               B
Hello   --->    MB Set (see if ModBit is set)
MB Set  <---    Hello Answer
ConEst  <---    MInfo (Mod Info)
MInfo   --->    ConEst (call ConnectionEstablished)

The mod info packet has to contain eMuleTags that announce the supported features. The packet is made up this way:

<uint 32> tag count
<emule tag 1>
<emule tag 2>
...
<emule tag n>

It's only allowed to use mod features it their capability was announced by both sides. After the capability exchange via OP_MODINFOPACKET all remaining opcodes are allowed to be used by clients in any way they want. All further communication is not part of this specification.

Setting the modbit in CT_EMULE_MISCOPTIONS2

in baseclient.cpp, void CUpDownClient::SendHelloTypePacket(CSafeMemFile* data)

	// eMule Misc. Options #2
	const UINT uKadVersion			= KADEMLIA_VERSION;
	const UINT uSupportLargeFiles	= 1;
	const UINT uExtMultiPacket		= 1;
	// Set the Mod Bit
	const UINT uModProt				= 1; // mod bit // NEO: NMP - [NeoModProt] <-- Xanatos --
	const UINT uSupportsCryptLayer	= thePrefs.IsClientCryptLayerSupported() ? 1 : 0;
	const UINT uRequestsCryptLayer	= thePrefs.IsClientCryptLayerRequested() ? 1 : 0;
	const UINT uRequiresCryptLayer	= thePrefs.IsClientCryptLayerRequired() ? 1 : 0;
	const UINT uSupportsSourceEx2	= 1;

	CTag tagMisOptions2(CT_EMULE_MISCOPTIONS2, 
//				(RESERVED				     )
				(uSupportsSourceEx2		<< 10) |
				(uRequiresCryptLayer	<<  9) |
				(uRequestsCryptLayer	<<  8) |
				(uSupportsCryptLayer	<<  7) |
				(uModProt				<<  6) |
				(uExtMultiPacket		<<  5) |

				(uKadVersion			<<  0) 
				);
	tagMisOptions2.WriteTagToFile(data);

[edit] Processing hello(answer) packets

Read out the modbit from CT_EMULE_MISCOPTIONS2

baseclient.cpp bool CUpDownClient::ProcessHelloTypePacket(CSafeMemFile* data)

	case CT_EMULE_MISCOPTIONS2:
				//	21 Reserved
				//	 1 Supports SourceExachnge2 Packets, ignores SX1 Packet Version

				//   1 Ext Multipacket (Hash+Size instead of Hash)
				//   1 Large Files (includes support for 64bit tags)
				//   4 Kad Version
				if (temptag.IsInt()) {
					m_fSupportsSourceEx2	= (temptag.GetInt() >>  10) & 0x01;
					m_fRequiresCryptLayer	= (temptag.GetInt() >>  9) & 0x01;
					m_fRequestsCryptLayer	= (temptag.GetInt() >>  8) & 0x01;
					m_fSupportsCryptLayer	= (temptag.GetInt() >>  7) & 0x01;
					// read the mod bit
					m_fSupportsModProt		= (temptag.GetInt() >>  6) & 0x01; // NEO: NMP - [NeoModProt] <-- Xanatos --
					m_fExtMultiPacket		= (temptag.GetInt() >>  5) & 0x01;
					m_fSupportsLargeFiles   = (temptag.GetInt() >>  4) & 0x01;
					m_byKadVersion			= (uint8)((temptag.GetInt() >>  0) & 0x0f);
					dwEmuleTags |= 8;
					if (bDbgInfo)
						m_strHelloInfo.AppendFormat(_T("\n  KadVersion=%u, LargeFiles=%u ExtMultiPacket=%u CryptLayerSupport=%u CryptLayerRequest=%u CryptLayerRequires=%u m_fSupportsSourceEx2=%u"), m_byKadVersion, m_fSupportsLargeFiles, m_fExtMultiPacket, m_fSupportsCryptLayer, m_fRequestsCryptLayer, m_fRequiresCryptLayer, m_fSupportsSourceEx2);
					m_fRequestsCryptLayer &= m_fSupportsCryptLayer;
					m_fRequiresCryptLayer &= m_fRequestsCryptLayer;

[edit] Sending hello answer and modprot info

Listensocket.cpp bool CClientReqSocket::ProcessPacket(const BYTE* packet, uint32 size, UINT opcode)

if (client->GetHashType() == SO_EMULE && !bIsMuleHello)
						client->SendMuleInfoPacket(false);

					client->SendHelloAnswer();

					if (client)
					{
						// NEO: NMP - [NeoModProt] -- Xanatos -->
						if(client->GetNeoModProtVersion())
							client->SendModInfoPacket();


Example of SendModInfoPacket:

void CUpDownClient::SendModInfoPacket(){
	if (socket == NULL){ // first we check if we have a valid socket, actualy we was called form the socket so this check is rather unnesesery, but in case
		ASSERT(0);
		return;
	}

	CSafeMemFile data(128);

	// write the amount of emule tags we intent to send
	// !!! this value must be correct !!! 
	uint32 tagcount=2;

	// write the first tag (Nr.1)
	// in this sample its an normal tag with an uint8 ID, its the modstring 0x55 = 'T'
	data.WriteUInt32(tagcount); // nr. of tags

[edit] Backward compatibility

The modstring is still send via hello(answer) packets but only if the remote client is using a mod and does not support the mod prot extension to maintain backward compatibility. Usage of CT_MOD_VERSION is proposed to move it to the mod protocol. A mod using the modbit MUST identify itself either via CT_MOD_VERSION in the hello(answer) packets or via modstring in the modinfo packet. NOTE: a mod that uses extensions but refuses to identify itself will most likely be considered a bad mod by some antileecher systems

The proposed check to use would be like

void CUpDownClient::SendHelloTypePacket(CSafeMemFile* data)
{
...
...
	uint32 tagcount = 6;

	if( theApp.clientlist->GetBuddy() && theApp.IsFirewalled() )
		tagcount += 2;

//>>> MODPROT::Send Modstring to old mods only
	const bool bSendModString = !SupportsModProt() && (!m_strModVersion.IsEmpty() || !m_pszUsername); 
	if(bSendModString)
		++tagcount;
//<<< MODPROT::Send Modstring to old mods only

	data->WriteUInt32(tagcount);
...
...
	tagMuleVersion.WriteTagToFile(data);

//>>> MODPROT::Send Modstring to old mods only
	if(bSendModString)
	{
		CTag tagMod(CT_MOD_VERSION, L"My Mod String");
		tagMod.WriteTagToFile(data);
	}
//<<< MODPROT::Send Modstring to old mods only

	uint32 dwIP;
	uint16 nPort;
...
...

and similar for the info packet.


[edit] OPCODE defines

OP_MODPROT       0x4D
OP_MODPACKEDPROT 0x6D
OP_MODINFOPACKET 0x01

[edit] TAG defines

Tags used must be reserved in modprot topic at http://forum.emule-project.net/ Sources must be published within 3 months after claiming a tag.

The range 0x01 - 0x1F is completely reserved.

Tags in the range from 0x20 - 0x7E are reserved for major features, possible objections can be:

  1. Modder uses too many tags (if you need more than 5 tags you are most likely doing something wrong. Note that string tags are also available - those are not regulated)
  2. Utterly useless or unimplementable feature (no other mod will ever use it)
  3. Illegal feature (should be clear)

The range 0x7F-FF is open and you can claim any free tag you want, only objection can be the usage of too many tags (e.g. someone claims to need a range from 0x80 to 0xAF).

TAGNAME VALUE Meaning Reserved by / source code
MISC_PROTOCOL_EXTENSIONS 'M' 4D used for full mod extensions like ICS, etc.. basic modprot
MISC_PROTOCOL_EXTENSIONS2 'm' 6D used for full mod extensions 2, reserved for future use basic modprot
CT_MOD_VERSION 'U' 0x55 Modstring basic modprot
KAD_EMULE_BUDDYID '@' 40 NatT David Xanatos
XS_EMULE_BUDDYIP 'B' 42 NatT David Xanatos
XS_EMULE_BUDDYUDP 'b' 62 NatT David Xanatos
NEO_PROTOCOL_EXTENSIONS 'N' 4E etc. David Xanatos
NEO_PROTOCOL_EXTENSIONS2 'n' 6E reserved for future Neo features David Xanatos


  • MISC_PROTOCOL_EXTENSIONS:
  [bit 1]   // Unsolicited Part Status (idea from netfinity, allows our client ro recieve filestatus at any time)
  [bit 2]   // LowID UDP Ping Support (notifyes a fix form xman1 that  allow the remote low ID to use udp reasks)
  [bit 3]   // ICSv2 New Official Version
  [bit 4]   // UDP Mod File Status*
  [bit 5]   // NATT - [NatTraversal], XSB - [XSBuddy], RPT - [ReuseTCPPort]
  [bit 6]   // NXS - [NeoXS]
  [bit 7]   // SF comments v2
  [bit 8]   // SCT
  [bit 9]   // L2HAC


* The UDP Mod File Status bit is not only used for ICS but used in general. It also tells whether Mod Multi Packet with extended mod status should be sent over UDP or not.
