18.104.22.168.1 Extended Buffer Handling
The EcDoConnectEx method, as specified in section 22.214.171.124, contains request and response buffers that use an extended buffer mechanism where the payload is preceded by a header. The handling of the extended buffer is specified in section 126.96.36.199.1.
Compression, as specified in section 188.8.131.52.1.2, or obfuscation, as specified in section 184.108.40.206.1.3, can be done differently for each header and associated payload. The client MUST be able to treat each header and associated payload independently and interpret the contents solely on the flags specified in the structure.
