    Hello Guys,
    Let me start by saying... I know very little about Unix/Linux, but for a non-profit organization I've been asked to do a task, that is a far amount out of my knowledge.

    About my host:
    DreamHost.com
    Unix/Linux Based
    Best Plan

    Okay heres what I need to do. Upload a version of LimeWire a P2P program for remote file sharing, but I don't even know where to begin to allow the web-server to run and host on LimeWire... Since I said I could do it before I knew what they were asking, I kind of have to do it.

    I REALLY need some help here. I will pay if someone can setup it for me as a tip.

    I have never heard of using Limewire to share files in a corporate setting. That is not even funny. Who thought of this idea? Does anyone in your organization realize the security risks you are taking?

    Yeah, nor I have I... Until they asked me. Well, I don't think they know much about computing but its what they have to do, and supposedly it can be done. Of course all the data is publicly avalible, and they will be adding a P2P Link to their site (once I make that too)... So I really need some help :confused:

    I think a better idea would be, host all your documents from that single server that you just bought, and just have it linked from the website, instead of relying on P2P networks.

    You should contact me on messaging, I'd be willing to discuss and help

    Well, I'm not going to disagree with that... However, I don't have the ability to change anything about it, moreover I am kind of stuck with this task. I will send you a PM.
