MCCP 3

I'd like to announce the MCCP3 protocol which I created mostly for my own purposes and I figured it might be of use to others. While MCCP2 compresses data sent from the server to the client MCCP3 compresses data sent from the client to the server.

MCCP2 uses telnet code 86, MCCP3 uses telnet code 87.

MCCP2 and MCCP3 are both described on this protocol page:

https://tintin.sourceforge.io/protocols/mccp/

Client MCCP3 support has been added to TinTin++ 2.01.8 which runs on Windows, Linux, OS X, and Android.

https://tintin.sourceforge.io

Server MCCP3 support has been added to MTH which can also run stand alone in case someone needs to debug server side MCCP3 support.

While compression ratios aren't very impressive for the typical MUD server's use case, MCCP3 adds a little bit of security through obscurity by no longer sending passwords and messages as plain text.

Re: MCCP 3

Tangentially related, does TinTin++ support secure telnet connections over TLS? It's something we do support in Mudlet and hope to see others pick up on.

Re: MCCP 3

It does, I added TLS support to TinTin++ 5 years ago.
