What is ADC?

ADC is a new protocol for the DC++ client. It is still under development. The specifications of the protocol can be found here. It potentially adds the capability to do the following:

  • Different shares in each hub
  • Nickname changing without having to reconnect
  • Encryption (chatting / file transfers)
  • Authentication without plaintext password transmission.
  • Advanced searching using regular expressions
  • Higher hub user counts, due to the lack of MyINFO which takes up a considerable amount of bandwidth.
