Are there any P2P programs out there? I used to use DC++ but the chans require to much most of the time. What do you use and why? kazaa is dead right? No spam installing progys!!!

There are only two P2P that I use:

eMule: The best I have used so far. Each file uses a hash link to verify the file so it's almost impossible to download a corrupted file. Multi-source downloads is supported as well, so you can get the file from more than one source. I found a lot of rare files which can't be found other networks. The credit system insures that everybody shares. No leechers on this network. The downside - if you're starting out don't expect to get your downloads right away because of queues and credit system.

Bittorrent: Fast and supports the hashing. The downside is it requires a tracker for it to work - the files don't last long on the network.

IRC: It's not P2P, but it usually fast. Downside is the lack of hashing and queues can be a problem.

I find bittorrent the best, especially for larger files.

also you can get bans kicks before you'll be able to download sth. or have to be invited to a channel, and it's not always fast...

That's why you don't search. You use the link sites.

Yeah, I've never been banned from an IRC channel. It's all about netiquette

That's why you use websites like fileDonkey to verify the file download.

Even then, when you use the search engine, you can tell if it's a fake or not by looking at the number of sources found. If your looking to download Linux and you found 500 sources for one file and one source for another file, you can be 99% be sure that the 500 source file is the real deal. Besides you can also add comments to a fake file to warn others not to download it.

also you can get bans kicks before you'll be able to download sth. or have to be invited to a channel, and it's not always fast...
Depends on the channel, and whether or not if you have read the rules.

Grey sites are staying, but black sites are being targeted.

You mean any file sharing app other than Kazaa, what with all hte spyware, adware and fakes? For me, as alreay mentioned, there is only eMule and BT. DC++ was a pain and ekafs were rampant.

ShareAZA has been on the scene for a long time :p I dont like it. It's also part of the Gnutella network I guess. I prefer IRC and BT. BT for huge files(progs ect). IRC for fansubs :p

BTComet for me, I like things in c++ :)

Shareaza is Gnutella, Gnutella2, and Edonkey2000. So far I like it and the skins are nice :thumb:

For eMule, Animereactor is the place is go.
Well of course Anime Fansubs :thumb: Most of the time I'm in animone and anime-kraze's channels. A-Kraze has the fastest bots I get their released way fast ;)

But whatever you are looking for, (legal ones or not) especially if you are using torrent search engines, 80% of sites where you end up are quite faaaaar from grey area...



eMule and Edonkey are indeed good ones for rare files, but is sometimes extremely slow, so patience is everything.



KaZaa Lite for quickly getting dirty files. :lol: Just kidding, KaZaa network sucks monkey ballz nowadays.



Is WinMX STILL alive? It was even slower than Emule/Edonkey network, thanks to about 1000 user long queue lines for every darn file.
