Free peer to peer chat for my site
The original Bit Torrent client first appeared on the scene in 2001.
It quickly attracted a loyal following among those interested in sharing movies and television programs in the form of torrent files.
Bit Torrent is an example of an anonymous p2p protocol where users host files for others to download.
I eventually added an extra feature to the project that’s not included in the workshop.
The first being your own ip, and the rest being peers you intend to communicate with.
It utilizes node’s net module to open up full connections between all addresses. Each computer in the network is actually operating as a server!
Ares Galaxy was developed in 2002, first supporting the Gnutella network and later the separate Ares P2P network.
Ares Galaxy was designed to offer decentralized music and other file-swapping support with built-in chat.
