To get the full experience of our online specs, you really need to use something a little bigger. Do you mind firing up your tablet or computer please?
The SoupTCP client must send a Login Request Packet immediately upon establishing a new TCP/IP socket connection to the server.
Client and server must have mutually agreed upon the username and password fields. They provide simple authentication to prevent a client from inadvertently connecting to the wrong server. Both Username and Password are case-insensitive and should be padded on the right with spaces.
The server can terminate an incoming TCP/IP socket if it does not receive a Login Request Packet within a reasonable period of time (typically 30 seconds).
|Packet Type ● #||Required Alphanumeric||Length: 1 char|
|Username ● #||Required Alphanumeric||Length: 6 char|
|Password ● #||Required Alphanumeric||Length: 10 char|
|Requested Session ● #||Required Numeric||Length: 10 char|

|Requested Sequence Number ● #||Required Numeric||Length: 20 char|
