protocol obfuscation
« on: March 01, 2006, 06:51:32 PM »

Hello,

Any ideas on what kinda priority protocol obfuscation will have in amule's development ?

My isp will be introducing traffic shaping. I have just read (slyck.com) that encryption is being used in bt clients to mangle the the packets in such a way that they can't be classified by the ISP's hardware and given lower priority or bandwidth.

Keep up the great work.

Regards,
Troc.

Change ISP. Take legal action. This is not technical problem.

And besides the questionable efforts to sabotage perfectly legal software and limit the users bandwith without paying money back, there is a technical reason that makes any attempt to do so pointless.

Whatever you do to obfuscate the protocol, you have to make sure your p2p partner understands your request or you could simply shut down amule. As long as other systems can contact yours (and since _all_ clients have to be compatible you can't do major changes anyway), your provider can create filters.

Cheers,

Well you can say what you want I support troc feature request: my ISP (free.fr) is using Service Control from Cisco to spy and block P2P traffic and I use protocol obfuscation in eMule 0.47 with Windows XP... and it works! Otherwise I have a Low-ID or I can't connect at all.

Protocol obfuscation in aMule please!

That's sad. I've only started using aMule a few months ago. Guess I have to go back to eMule on Windoze from now on, seeing as it's the only mule that is of any use on my bandwidth-throttling ISP. The sad thing is I can't just switch ISP as it's the only ADSL provider in the whole country. You fellas in the free country sure got it good.

You could run eMule 0.47c on Linux using wine as well until aMule supports protocol obfusication.

eMule with wine will be "messy" on a linux machine that is running purely as a backend server. Moreover, most people are running using old machines like me which is PII and running linux is not a problem.

Such server which is turned on 24/7 would consume a lot less power to save on electricity and low maintenance.

So, aMule daemon is still the way to go for me. Hopefully the obfuscation protocol will be implemented soon. Not trying to be pushy here but for people like us who is stuck with 1 ISP, it's really no looking good.

Keep up the good work of developing aMule.

Hi,

when i search with amule (2.1.0 version in Ubuntu Dapper) i can see this sort of response for servers so i think protocole obfuscation will be mandatory in the not too distant future :

That only happens sometimes using the donkey server and if they think you've a provider which filters ed2k-packages.  It's done in order to prevent sending packages over and over again which will always be filtered by the isp's routers.

Solution: Use another server or KAD.

I am checking eMule encryption code right now. Coding will be started really soon.
