    Thnx for answer. I'd explored this link before, and agreed with
    you - it's à good point to start.
    But it's much more interesting to know all that p2p sequences,
    that ICQ uses.
    For example - if you open your IPs to anybody, their ICQ try to
    connect with you exactly after connect. Why???

Best regards,
