You might choice to buy the source code from the other
company or to develop equivalent code yourself.
You can also ask open source developers to help. I'm sure
that if documentation is given, you will find people who
are willing to help.
If documentation is not given, you will probably
find someone that will reverse engineer the protocol,
sooner or later :)
