Kazaa - filename

Postby UserJanu » Fri Apr 13, 2007 5:37 am

Hi all


when I selected a file to be downloaded from 'search results' in Kazaa
the packet sniffing shows that a hash value goes from client to the
supernode.
its of the form
"GET /.hash="
a 20 byte hash value follows.

how does the client get the hash value as well as other information.

Is there any way to get the filename
and other information of a file requested for download?

Does this information go in any of the packets?
Thanks
UserJanu

Just use a decompiler, not hard. Totally illegal, but it's kazaa so I very much doubt anyone will care much.

With the greatest respect, if you are smart enough to use a packet sniffer, what, may I ask would you want with kazaa?

By the way all the cool kid's no longer use kazaa.
It's been replaced by other file trading software and networks.
