These are some possible extensions specified when negotiating the NTP
protocol. That is, immediately on connecting you would put something like:
< NTP/1.2 >< plugins_cve_id plugins_bugtraq_id plugins_xrefs >
Indeed, look in nessus-core/nessus/nessus.h for PROTO_NAME -- that gives
the extensions used by the nessus client when it connects.

You can, by the way, skip this using the extension "fast_login".

I don't understand -- what extra info?

Provided you specify the md5_caching extension when connecting, you can
use the COMPLETE_LIST message to list plugins; eg,
< NTP/1.2 >< md5_caching plugins_cve_id plugins_bugtraq_id plugins_xrefs >
CLIENT <|> COMPLETE_LIST <|> CLIENT
