ADC is a new distributed community based peer-to-peer network based on the now obsolete DirectConnect. The network still consists of clients and hubs (servers), but adding modern capabilities, such as multisource downloads, unique ids, file hashes, security and stealth.
ADC supersedes the DCTNG initiative, but the DCTNG protocol documents are kept here for historical reasons.
|ADC/0.14||Hash algorithm is now modularized, and the tiger hash is an extension of the protocol.|
|ADC/0.13||Password hashing changed, INF command changed slightly, CTM token mandatory.|
|ADC/0.12||New command class 'E' for echo. (Also, see the discussion)|
|ADC/0.10||Session IDs, hashed (and presumably more secure) CIDs, encrypted ADC using TLS|
|DCTNG/0.4||The last DCTNG protocol spesification draft (December, 2003)|
|DCTNG/0.3||Second publicly available draft (July, 2003)|
|DCTNG/0.1||First publicly available draft (May, 2003)|
