    MSN Project

    Hi,
    I am planing to implement MSN in an applet form or something similar for a project... I searched the net and found many of them explaining the protocol...

    I tried them but the response from the server is quite different.. I get different kind of commands and information returned... Looks like most of the sites have the older version of the protocol explained...

    Does any one know links where i can get the latest info regarding this..


    thanx

    don't know about documentation, but the newest GAIM definitely works with MSN. Since it is opensource you should be able to steal the info.

    I don't know if you know about this site, http://www.hypothetic.org/docs/msn/index.php has info on MSNP9 and MSNP10, the problem with most sites will be that they have the older MSNP7 or 8.
    MS did a 'lockdown' of the messenger service some time ago (all they did was actually upgrade to MSNP9).
    As FYB said, take a look at GAIM, or aMSN, they both work with the now version. I think you have to use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) to be able to talk to the hotmail servers, though.

    PHP has an MD5 encryption function built-in. From www.php.net/md5:
    md5

    (PHP 3, PHP 4 )
    md5 -- Calculate the md5 hash of a string
    Description
    string md5 ( string str [, bool raw_output])

    Calculates the MD5 hash of str using the RSA Data Security, Inc. MD5 Message-Digest Algorithm, and returns that hash. The hash is a 32-character hexadecimal number. If the optional raw_output is set to TRUE, then the md5 digest is instead returned in raw binary format with a length of 16.

    Note: The optional raw_output parameter was added in PHP 5.0.0 and defaults to FALSE

    Example 1. A md5() example
    PHP Code:
    <?php
    $str 
    'apple';

    if (
    md5($str) === '1f3870be274f6c49b3e31a0c6728957f') {
       echo 
    "Would you like a green or red apple?";
       exit;
    }
    ?>
    See also crc32(), md5_file(), and sha1().
    Also, according tgo the fsockopen() info on the site:
    As of PHP 4.3.0, if you have compiled in OpenSSL support, you may prefix the hostname with either 'ssl://' or 'tls://' to use an SSL or TLS client connection over TCP/IP to connect to the remote host.
    I once tried to to an MSN client, but I gave up, as I didn't have a clear idea of what I wanted to do.
