Hi I was just wondering wich P2P everyone uses? Here at college the only one Ive found that works is Myster the rest I have tried are blocked by the firewall. The only problem is the selection is extremely poor. NE ways just wondering?
AVOID KAZAA LITE AT ALL COSTS!!!Originally posted by mac15
serioulsy get Virtual PC and run kazzalite, cause everything else on a mac sucks compared to it, even aquasition
I use limewire from time to time. unreliable is right.Originally posted by eyelikeart
I use Limewire too...although it's not always reliable...it does the trick sometimes...
I used to use Hotline a lot...but it became less & less worth it IMO...
I have also found luck with Carracho when trading up between a buddy of mine..
fatty knows what he is talking about. i was going to add my own comments until i read this post. fatty basically says everything i would have added. most other people here dont seem to be very familiar with any of the apps they mention or their alternatives, but fatty knows whats up. good job.Originally posted by FattyMembrane
if your on a university connection, gnutella clients (limewire, aquisition, fern, etc.) will most likely be blocked. edonkey works on many university networks but you'll get mixed reviews of its performance. surprisingly, xnap actually works on many university networks (http://xnap.sourceforge.net) and is quite good for music (a few other files, but not many). neo will let you connect to kazaa clients (through some port-scanning, which can be tedious) but once again, university firewalls are hit or miss with this one as it is not an actuall kazaa client, but accesses the same port. hotline, kdx, and carracho are usually fine on university connections, kdx seeming to be the most reliable in terms of free access, with carracho having the all mac advantage. i have not tried myster in several months, or some of the other ones that are springing up (chatline, nodescan, etc.), but when i did use them, the file base was extremely limited.
