eMule protocol obfuscation

Postby zbeast » Mon Sep 11, 2006 1:04 pm

The eMule team has released a new version of eMule, which supports protocol obfuscation, a feature which causes eMule�s communication to appear as random data and makes it more difficult for ISP�s to throttle eMule users.

This made me smile. It's like anti-DRM. :)

Hard to say if this could be a long term solution or not though. Time will tell.

Not if it leads to providers deciding to go after individual users (the biggest downloaders/sharers) instead of just throttling their bandwidth.

But that has always been less likely...bad for business, especially if the word about offloading customers spreads (whereas with throttling, many inexperienced users won't even know it's there, and the provider has plausible deniability...)
