yes, it is a special protocol and listen on port 2425 by default.
xipmsg also this word in his description[1]

[1] http://packages.debian.org/sid/xipmsg

currently there are many clients support this protocol

IP Messenger: http://www.ipmsg.org/index.html.en
xipmsg: http://www.bsddiary.net/xipmsg/ (for X11)
gipmsg: http://gipmsg.sourceforge.net/ (for GNOME 1)
gtkipmsg: http://free.prohosting.com/~nobori/gtkipmsg.shtml (download
link broken)
g2ipmsg: http://www.ipmsg.org/archive/g2ipmsg-0.9.6.tar.gz (for GNOME2)
and iptux: http://code.google.com/p/iptux (for GTK+ 2)

Do all these clients reimplement code to deal with the protocol?
Perhaps they could join forces and write a library so they can share
the code and reduce the amount of work and bugs. Could you forward
this idea upstream? This would make it easy to write a telepathy (or
pidgin) plugin too.

it is already in my TODO list, I'll split a libipmsg(or another name)
from iptux, (the other open source clients sounds broken, g2ipmsg
crashed at once in my computer, and the others are all deprecated).
