Generate eMule file id

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View


I am hosting a huge archive of german documents, tools and movies
related to IT security[1].

Due the fact some files (especially the software and movie parts) are
large in their size and therefore heavily increasing the traffic of my
web site, I would like to provide an alternative eMule link to download

The generation of an e2DK link seems to be very easy:

    ed2k://|file|<file name>|<file size in bytes>|<fileid>|/

Does somebody know how to generate an e2DK file id? It does not seem to
be an usual MD5 value. But I have not tried other hash algorithms (e.g.
SHA1) yet - I hope somebody can help me out without doing the research
myself ;) ! Putting the link manually on my web site is not an option
because I am too lazy on my old days ;) !

I believe ed2k protocol uses a MD4-based hash.
