DirectConnect is another file sharing protocol and program
like Edonkey, WinMX, etc.. etc..


It tends to use TCP and UDP port 412.  Heres an FAQ with
some details about it:

I have received a message from MediaForce about a claim of copyright work
infringement.  In the infringement detail section, MediaForce indicates the
Network and Protocol are "DirectConnect".

Does anyone know what DirectConnect references?  I doubt it is SMB/Windows
networking since I block the NetBIOS ports egress and ingress - any other
