    I have friends all over the world. We have been discussing ways that we can share photos, music and home movies through a p2p system that would be secure (some of my stuff is really bad). There is about 25 of us (some from grad school and a couple of friends of friends, etc. It would be nice if it had a built in chat room, IM capabilities, and room to grow. is this a feature on X code? I have looked at WASTE buts it looks like its in the Alpha stage still. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I don't know what OS these people run but a Carracho or KDX system sounds like a good idea.

    KDX seems to do everything you want and supports mac/pc.KDX could use a centralised server, but this should not be a problem as long as one of the members has lots of bandwidth.

    You could also each set up your own little server but that would be less efficient.

    Direct Connect is also an option.

    File Sharing

    I use Limewire 4.26 to share some of my bad videos. Version 4.26 has some kind of direct connect, if you know your friends ip address.
    I get more uploads from P2P than my web page

    Do you mean as in an ethernet direct connect? Or is this a program? Do you have a link?
