Protocol 7.00 - Resend request ?

Postby cakeisalie5 » Sat Aug 20, 2016 10:33 am

Hello,

I am creating a lib that implements protocol 7.00 as described in the fxReverse project documentation (2nd edition). You can see the project here.

I am trying to implement file sending protocol. But the calculator answers weirdly. This is basically the packet flow I obtain :

=> check(initial)
<= ack
=> command (0x45)
<= ack
=> data
<= resend

And as I interpreted the "resend request" as a response to bad checksum (which is not the case here), the lib then resends the packet, then the calculator sends again the resend request, and it loops until the calculator just ends up sending an empty bulk so my lib would let her alone. Here are my logs if you're interested :

I came here to ask : am I getting the theory right, or should I not resend the data packet but the command packet above ? What could be the cause of this ?

Thanks in advance for your help :)

I am not sure, but your main data packet looks like you did no 0x5C-padding.
You must transform any data byte b < 0x20 to 0x5C,b and 0x5c to 0x5c,0x5c before transmitting the data packet.
This is because protocol 7.00 uses control codes below 0x20.
If you receive data, you have to reverse the 0x5c-padding.
I'll be back!

That's what I did ^^

For example, on the third line of the data packet, '\n' (0x0A), is transformed to 0x5C2A :)

(file i'm sending (which is also the source code of the test) : )
hidden: Show
Code: Select all
#include <stdio.h>
#include <libp7.h>

/**
 *   main:
 *   User entry point of the program.
 */

int main(void)
{
   char username[9];

   /* Initialize libp7 */
   if (!p7_init()) {
      printf("Couldn't initialize libp7 : %s\n", p7_geterror());
      return (3);
   }

   /* Initialize communication */
   if (!p7_start()) {
      printf("Couldn't initialize communication : %s\n", p7_geterror());
      return (3);
   }

   /* Open file */
   FILE *fp = fopen("main.c", "r");
   if (!fp)
      printf("Couldn't open file");

   /* Send file */
   if (!p7_sendfile(fp, NULL, "main.c", "fls0")) {
      printf("Couldn't send file : %s\n", p7_geterror());
   }

   /* Close file */
   close(fp);

   /* Close communication */
   p7_term();

   return (0);
}

Yes, sry, I overlooked that. I have to consult very old source code now. Could take some time.

I just logged a transfer on my system. This is the ST "45" packet, which my program constructed:

01 34 35 31 30 30 32 37 30 32 30 30 30 30 30 30 .451002702000000
46 45 31 38 30 30 30 42 30 30 30 30 30 34 30 30 FE18000B00000400
49 4E 53 49 47 48 54 2E 47 31 41 66 6C 73 30 35 INSIGHT.G1Afls05
46 F

This is the ST "45" packet out of your log

[libp7 info] 0134 3531 3030 3232 0032 3030 2020 2020 .4510022.200
[libp7 info] 2032 4237 3030 3036 3030 3030 3034 3030 2B7000600000400
[libp7 info] 6D61 696E 2E63 666C 7330 4430 main.cfls0D0

The 8 byte filesize (2B7) is preceded by spaces (0x20). It should be 5 ASCII-zeros (0x30).

OW should be set to "02". In your packet the "2" is preceded by a binary zero. It should be an ASCII-zero.
I'll be back!

Oh god, you're right Oo
I've fixed the size-thing, but I don't know where the binary zero comes from. I'll investigate.

Thanks soooo much <3

So I've corrected quite some errors related to packets, and now, it should work as hell. But it does not :(

Here is the new test file :
test file: Show
Code: Select all
#include <stdio.h>
#include <libp7.h>

/**
 *   main:
 *   User entry point of the program.
 */

int main(void)
{
   /* Initialize libp7 */
   if (!p7_init()) {
      printf("Couldn't initialize libp7 : %s\n", p7_geterror());
      return (3);
   }

   /* Initialize communication */
   if (!p7_start()) {
      printf("Couldn't initialize communication : %s\n", p7_geterror());
      return (3);
   }

   /* Open file */
   FILE *fp = fopen("main.c", "r");
   if (!fp)
      printf("Couldn't open file");

   /* Send file */
   if (!p7_sendfile(fp, NULL, "main.c", "fls0")) {
      printf("Couldn't send file : %s\n", p7_geterror());
   }

   /* Close file */
   close(fp);

   /* Close communication */
   p7_term();

   return (0);
}

[libp7 fatal] p7_send_basic: calculator was disconnected
[libp7 warn]  p7_term: couldn't send or didn't receive confirmation

(ending interruption is because I'm pressing AC on the calculator)

I've checked manually the two packets and they should be good (I haven't checked the checksum manually as if it works for the command extended packet, it should work for data packet as well).

I've tried adding a folder name (as I just send an empty string in D1, a.k.a. the folder name) and I still get the same problem : infinite resend requests. I don't understand the problem Oo

No worries. You are welcome.

You have to use the same subtype (ST) in the data packet (T=0x02) as in the corresponding command packet (T=0x01).
=>
[libp7 info] 0234 3531 3031 3233 3030 3033 3030 3031 .451012300030001
I'll be back!
