MCCP description

The Mud Client Compression Protocol

Servers that maintain long-lived connections to clients and send compressible data (for example, MUD servers) may find it useful to trade CPU usage for a reduction in bandwidth by compressing outgoing data. MCCP is a protocol for achieving this by negotiating the use of compression over a Telnet-style connection.

For mud clients that don't support MCCP there is a small program (also on original MCCP page) called mcclient. It acts as a proxy doing the whole work in the background. For notes on how to use it please read the documents included in the source file.
