Direct Connect Protocol

I'm looking for an internet draft or RFC for the Direct Connect protocol. I looked around a little bit, with little luck. A url would be great...

Do you mean the peer-to-peer file sharing program called "Direct Connect?"  What makes you think there is one?  From what I can there is no RFC for this.  You might be able to down load the source and figure it out.

Yes, the client "Direct Connect" was one of the first programs to implement the Direct Connect protocol. It is not the only one though, and as many clients use this same protocol now, I would assume that it is documented somewhere. Obviously I could trace through the source code and figure it out myself, but it would be much easier to refer to a draft somewhere.

Can you point me to where Direct connect is defined as a protocol?  

The only reference I find is to the program and other programs that have been written to communicate with a Direct Connect server.

From what I can see there is no protocol "Direct Connect" and I can find any RFC's defining it.

I did find this.  I have not downloaded it, but it may provide enough information for what you need:
