WarpCopy64 client: further development

As part of the effort to support RR-Net and the WarpCopy64 server in IECHost, a while back I was developing a WarpCopy PC client. As I am delving into the WarpCopy protocol further, I expanded such client to fetch the directory listing.

Here’s an example of the resulting output:

>wc64-client.exe 192.168.254.64:6644
Remote address: 192.168.254.64:6644
Local address: 192.168.254.8:54998

It’s still quite early in the process, but this client implementation is helping me to understand the finer details of the protocol.

Stay tuned for more!
