P2P file sharing

17 posts in this topic

So what's the best P2P file sharing program ? I've experimented with Limewire , Utorrent and emule but my question is as follows :

If i'm using limewire and you're using emule I'm assuming we cant share files ... or can we ? As far as I can see if I'm using Limewire I can only share files with other Limewire users.

If that's the case the the best P2P program to use would be the one that is the most popular and has the most users. So which is it ?

Advice please ! Thanks !

Give it chance, an answer normally pops up, I doubt this is the most frequently visited part of the site.

As for myself I played around with Limewire for a while. Went looking for porn and ended up with stuff that could have put me in jail! I've stayed away from p2p since then, so can't help with the question.

I think you might be sharing as this is the only the application as far as the torrent is concerned as you can deducted that that not all peers use the same bittorrent program.

I will say bittorrent is popular as there are many torrent programs out there..the best one would be utorrent is as this does not eat up your cpu/memory resource (well not much anyway)

It depends. There are several Peer2Peer networks all have different communications protocols, features and content. The biggest networks are BitTorrent and Gnutella 1&2, EDonkey.

There are lots of clients and most can access multiple networks to download, but usually only seed (be a source) on one network.

I use shareaza which access most networks.

I would never download software via p2p, only ever content.

Yes, but limiting yourself to content is no guarantee you won't download a virus/trojan etc. There's a different issue that a programme e.g. fake copy of Windows could cause issues/conflicts etc on your PC.

I used to use Shareaza, but now prefer utorrent. Becareful of one thing: it can eat into your bandwidth allowance, even using the scheduler, as I've discovered! I don't like BitComet, as you can't say, schedule all your jobs, but, keep one or two open.

uTorrent works well for me.

I used Limewire for a while but uTorrent is much faster.

uTorrent is my preferred as well, lightweight and the peer exchange is a bonus.

I'm a recent convert to uTorrent, much faster than Azureus which I used to use.

I use Bit torrent and download most of my files off of puretna.com. They have a good search function, so I can easily find what interests me the most....which is homemade porn! I like to watch real people having real sex, rather than the manufactured junk, that is most pro porn, each to his own though!

Used most but in the last few years stuck with UTorrent.

Only ever use ISOhunt as a search. Dont download porn at all just films and tv shows. Watched the whole series of Jamie Olivers food revolution last week.

Oh a TVersity so I can stream it to my PS3.
