The CodeNet protocol is a very simple protocol to send data and executables to a C64 computer via
ethernet. A CodeNet server is normally listening on UDP port 6462. The protocol uses a request-reply
mechanism to ensure that the server has received each packet. Every valid CodeNet packet is replied
with a packet with the same sequence number and the service field set to ACK (0x01). Optional fields
are not replied.
