that's good news. although i had no more time to develop the java
client, i hoped that someone could use my protocol findings.

not at all. i've started long time ago looking at the (unencrypted)
protocol. then i thought (a) to improve my java skills and (b) to see
if i got things right regarding the protocol: write a software client.
at that time, suns soft client did not exist.

please add things you know. it is crazy, if such info is distributed
in serveral places -- even worse, if it is on someones harddisk only.
unfort, i did not come as far to get to the ALDP (Appliance Link

the ALDP should be fairly easy to get.

i am not 100% sure, but it may be that you have to check
utdevmgrd 7011/tcp # SUNWut device manager
maybe all usb related traffic is over tcp. i've never traced that part.
good luck, nick -- and pls contribute.
