Unknown packet question.

Here you can discuss packets, implementation and design, and software related to the packet sniffing and such. This is not the place to post packages for POL, but rather discuss the packet side of them.

Unknown packet question.

Post by Salinaksm » Sun Aug 23, 2009 5:30 pm

I am currently working on my conversion of the Asgard script set and have noticed repeating unknown packets messages. I have no real knowledge of packets so am unsure how to read this output. Was hoping somebody here could help me understand what the client is sending that the server doesn't understand.

Code: Select all

The first two are constant during client login, the last two just appear from time too time.
