Limited alpha test done for kerjodando p2p (better cos its private).
Swarms made and fast "torrent" download of big files done in private network.
kerjodando similar to bit torrent.
In bit torrent users swarm around a specific file with specific ip addresses.
Kerjodando p2p users swarm around a group of files with indistinguishable ip addresses and proxies.
This forms many small networks like bit torrent.
To try the alpha test:
- Choose indie-music group
- Click to link at the bottom of the picture to join indie-music group
- Download of java client takes place automatically(say yes to accept certificate, select language and click on start ANts)
- Wait two to five minutes to connect to network
- Search and download from files in indie-music group
After that I will add facility for users to make own groups.
Both these functions will be done in a Ruby on Rails / AJAX website currently beeen coded by developer.
The new site is going to be called "Dagens" (Today's Special in Norwegian) and will resemble a thePirateBay in function except will be a friend to friend (F2F) website.
In summary, in normal p2p everyone is in one searchable network.
However, kerjodando is like a friend to friend version of bit torrent as you only join networks that share your interest.
