Well, lot of people ask about where to get a protocol description, a met file format...

Here are some links I have found, maybe this is usefull for developers:

"eMule Protocol Specification" (Unofficial):
http://sourceforge.n...ckage_id=145950

"The eMule application of the eDonkey protocol" (Powerpoint Presentation):
http://www.cs.huji.a...eMule/eMule.ppt

"eDonkey2000 Protocol" (Unofficial):
http://hydranode.com.../ed2kproto.html

An older eDonkey Protocol Specification + Met File formats (Select one of the mirrors in the page):
http://prdownloads.s...2.html?download

More protocol specifications from the efarm-project:

Well, being this a forum about P2P technology, why not providing the ED2K links for some of those files as well?

Here that for the protocol v3:
ed2k://|file|(ebook-pdf)%20eFarm%20project,%20Protocol%20V3%201%20EN.pdf|227587|A21021B2268AB6AC1ACC9EF154FAFCA6| |h=NE653DWRRDGDFP3DKMIBVKDS6GMJQNPG|/

All the protocol Visio diagrams packaged:
ed2k://|file|ED2K_Protocol_(Visio_diagrams).rar|208794|794E8FA9A33E9547CC8A118228E9553A| |h=T5OTB3NQSGP57IRQ4A4CX6BKGXIQWWW6|/

Old protocol + met file specifications:

The Kademlia ED2k implementation:
ed2k://|file|(ed2k%20doc)%20KAD_protocol.pdf|81047|B96817E90CDD4CCC4CD56E5FDC3899E7| |h=S7QYXSJYECHVQEJTSMQPVXBLDOSAGUPD|/

AFAIK, the eMule Kad implementation differs quite a lot from the original Kademlia paper. To call Kademlia the "ED2K implementation" is extremely misleading, IMHO.

Kademlia blueprints is a representation of a network.
eMule KADemlia protocol is an implementation of those ideas. They may differ (as anything which goes from mental models to the ground to work), but still it is Kademlia.

This is from ZZUL mod, but that should be good to understand the global layout nontheless;

ed2k://|file|eMule-046b-ZZUL-docs%20(HTML).rar|26271732|864925CE11FF3C118E6D06A001BFB994| |h=N424TQF346I7LD76ERFG54FBQGYQUKXG|/

Hope it is right to publish them here (that are a form of documentation, BTW).

...and i agree with you, but that's a not enough deep documentation to understand eMule Kad.
Is there something deeper?

Examples:
- How does eMule Kad impements search by keyword?
- How does eMule Kad publics shared files info?
...
I read that PDF and there's nothing about the above questions, inside it.

Please feed us! :flowers:

Is there a more up to date version of the documentation, I'm encountering a lot of TAGs that aren't documented properly in Cybermutant's docs. The "partmet_info.txt" file doesn't contain tags that are actually part of the sample file.

Can anyone post the most updated part.met specification/documentation somewhere?

The most common (and useless) answer is to look into eMule source code.
But I won't make such a suggestion :ph34r:

Today I finally managed to get a copy of these files from the possible last source in the network (yeah, it took all these days to get 200K, bloody mods without SUQWT :-k) :

ed2k://|file|Ed2K%20Protocol%20(Visio%20Diagrams).rar|208794|794E8FA9A33E9547CC8A118228E9553A|h=T5OTB3NQSGP57IRQ4A4CX6BKGXIQWWW6|/

Ditto Guys. I guess asking for the Lugdunnum MAN pages would get a good laugh.....
