I don't think this is the right forum for a question like that - did you mix up "distributed computing" and "peer to peer" ?

Anyway, I use Shareaza, but then again, I'm not a big leecher, maybe 50 MB per month.

thanks BMC, sorry about the posting, not sure where to post this one in fact. Anyhow I only need one to share like 200k word files etc with my buddy noting major. 10MB/mo. is probably more than I need.

Don't worry man, no prob :)

I think it would belong into the "Software" part of the forums.

What you're talking about isn't actually P2P sharing, but more something like a priivate network. These files are just for your buddy and for yourself? Then Shareaza won't do you any good, 'cause it'll share the files with the world! ;)

Maybe something like DC++ is more what you're looking for.

:beer:

If all you want to do is share with a buddy look at xampp.

It lets you run an apache server with php perl and mysql as well as ftp etc.

its a simple install process and you can configure it for what ever you want

for 200k though just email it to him;)

gmail and lycos can handle that
