|eMule is able to acquire sources for downloads from other eMule clients.
For well shared files every 10 minutes a random client in the source list of
a particular download is asked for its sources.
If the file is rare, i.e. less than 40 sources, every client in the list is
asked for its sources in this interval.
Only sources for missing parts are acquired. This is done via TCP and the packets
are compressed to save bandwidth.
||The protocol used is not compatible with mldonkey's source
|| Client to Client Source Exchange is done over the Client Port 4662 using
the TCP protocol
||Low ID sources are not traded
Applies to version: 0.22a +
