In computing, MCCP (Mud Client Compression Protocol) is a network protocol that is used in text MUDs for data compression.[1][2]

Specifically, MCCP is used to compress the output text stream sent by a MUD to a MUD client using zlib, in order to reduce bandwidth usage, resulting in a faster connection.[3] MCCP must be implemented on the server side as well as the client side, and negotiated using the Telnet protocol.[4]
