Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I was wondering if it would be possible to emulate a WinMX client as a HTML webpage for personal use. I could emulate WinMX on my sever using Perl perhaps. I'm not too sure where to begin with this and was wondering if it is at all possible. First of all I'd need to establish all the transactions which take place between the WinMX client and the WinMX servers. Is there any application I could use to record these transactions through the particular port? I might then be able to repeat these transactions from a perl script, rather than the client.
look forward to you advice!
