Friendly p2p


Recommended Posts

Can anyone vouch for a program that allows two or more computers to have a p2p network. In the past I used a program called Grouper. It was exactly what I wanted but the company went under when too many of it's users were abusing the system, creating large mp3 sharing networks. I have also used Waste, but it's a pain to setup and isn't a true p2p since it requires a server to be running. Any suggestions?

I think OneSwarm might be what you're looking for.

Check it out.

Cool program. The concept behind the program is very intuitive. But after it boots up for the second time it uses 100% of system resources. I'll keep that one bookmarked until windows comes out of beta / they update it.

After some searching I found a program called Retro Share. I'll see how it works.

Cool program! It probably the most feature similar to grouper. BUT it requires port forwarding. This isn't a problem for me, but I will be using this with people who think port forwarding is putting there thumb drive in the next available slot.

From what I can tell so far retro share will work fine. But I'm still open to ideas if some one knows of a better program.
