    If you use 10.2, check out Aquisition. Go to www.xlife.org to download it, its pretty good. It will ask you to pay for it ,but just keep ignoring that window.

    Acquisition isnt really that bad!

    Hope that helps

    heres a good program

    This the program that was recomended to me by my brother. I have no idea how to use it though. However, I do know that it is not p2p. I think it is called DirectConnect. Anyway, go to this web page to download it:

    I would recomend that you have a fast connection to the internet for this Application though.

    Good Luck!!:D

    I'll second that. I run two Carracho servers myself. It's easily the best thing going, way better than hotline, and its MAC ONLY.

    Screw iSwipe, try Carracho. ;-)

    It's the best app for.. Apps. If you want porn though, stick to gnutella.

    i'm not a big file-sharer unless it's for free/uncopyrighted material or evaluation purposes (although sometimes i evaluate things longer than i should :rolleyes: ) but i love to see things come to the mac that my windows friends thought were some kind of amazing killer app for the pc. i have not used it yet, but a friend of mine swears by it, it's called bittorrent and you can find the osx binary at http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/download.html

    im not much for getting on peoples cases here, but there are like two hundred threads on p2p programs for the mac and they all have the same answers, why dont you just look it up in the search on this site already or go to versiontracker and look for yourself.
    oh and in my opinion all of the peer programs right now, on both windows and mac, suck ass big time. p2p may not be dead, but it is sure hibernating.
