As a client developer I agree... Its not that big of a deal to
implement DTCP.. it just takes motivation.... Plus, even though there
are miriads of libs for SOCKS5 about.. there is nothing that I am
easily able to use in my client.. so, like everything ive done so far,
I would still have to code it from a spec somewhere *from scratch*.<br>

Actually, on low bandwidth connections (maybe even the hardware in
embedded systems -- I don't have enough experience with these), I
wouldn't be surprised if it slows down the amount of time it takes to
establish a TCP connection.
This can be solved by the implementation for that scenario. Implementations
of DTCP do not necessarily _have_ to connect at the same time, and providing
hosts is optional by either the initiator or target.
<pre wrap="">I don't understand your logic, or Justin's, for that matter. You have
both regularly stated that DTCP is an easier protocol to implement, yet
you continually reject complaints from *client developers* that disagree
(namely, PGM and DizzyD).
Have they tried to implement either spec for fair comparison? After coding
DTCP and reading JEP-65, I'd say they are about the same in difficulty, but
that is just my opinion.
