Appears this is not always null for cdkey products, just logged this while on D2XP:
ff 0a 1b 00 46 61 72 43 72 61 70 00 55 53 45 61 73 74 2c 46 61 72 43 72 61 70 00

(DWORD) Protocal Header: ff 0a 1b 00
(STRING) CharacterName: 46 61 72 43 72 61 70 00
(STRING) Realm, Character: 55 53 45 61 73 74 2c 46 61 72 43 72 61 70 00

This would be logging into USEast on D2XP with the realm character "FarCrap" on my account, no account info is seen in the packet. The account in use is Boredom and it is logged into the realm character FarCrap.

Perhaps, but in WAR3 and W3XP its always a null five-character string with the last two bytes being "W3" (then a null char")

Yah the extra data relates to realm characters, for only D2DV and D2XP it seems.
Can you post a full log of 0x0A that contains bytes you are refering to?
For both war3 and w3xp I am getting: ff 0a 06 00 00 00
