needed was to send \xff\status\ or \player\info to the UDP/23000 socket, and
it would start singing. 

like i said, any '\' will cause the plain text info to be spwed back at you
(the initial compaint was that we were not differentiating between

This one is a bit different, as it seems like the first 20 bytes after the
IP layer are somewhat different, except that there's the occasional 23.456
that is sent to the server, and the response is the server information back
to the client... 


do you mean ip header or udp header (it does go <ip><udp> before the actual


anyway, i don't know what you're really asking, but let's see if this


what follows is a a text (in ascii) stream of key/value pairs seperated by
'\' characters. forexample,
