Easy Peer To Peer Data Sharing

By John Nash

Before we move on to take a look at the real essence of the topic, we must first know that what a peer-to-peer sharing is. A peer-to-peer (abbreviated as P2P) is a network structural design that is made of accomplices, who make all or portion of their data available amongst themselves, with no necessitates for servers. All these peers are both purveyors and users of services.

There have been many file sharing systems in the past, and they have pioneered the concept of P2P sharing, and with time, have added in new structures, theories, advancement, technologies. This network is basically formed by the nodal network ad-hoc additions. These systems have a layered overlay, which allows users to exchange data through a specified IP network. This provides sharing of very large amounts of data with an equally handsome amount of speed.

There are two architectures followed in P2P data sharing. In one, there is a central server that controls the flow to data from one node to another node. In the second structure, all the nodes can communicate with each other, without a central server controlling the data exchange flow. Many software applications have been developed and are used extensively in P2P. This software application is a required to control the data exchange flow.

In a P2P network, clients are themselves the resource providers. The resources that they provide are usually file sharing, audio/video sharing and torrents. Torrents have nowadays become really successful, and there are millions of torrents downloaded per day. Torrent can easily be downloaded with a nice speed, because there are multiple peers providing the same file, so multiple clusters are acquired.

Most P2P sharing software is free, and for some, there is a monthly subscription. If you do not want to pay, you can certainly do that and use one of the freeware software packages. You would not have to sit and wait for hours for a file to get downloaded. Most sites that have P2P sharing have high speed connections, so the download speed will really be determined on your internet connection speed.

For an easy peer to peer data sharing, what needs to be done is to first identify your network resources. When that is done, look for connection systems and decide which system you will like to make as a network server. Draw a basic layout sketch of your network and start working on it. Give your server a default IP address and then in the computers of your network, follow that IP address as the Gateway address of your network.

P2P software lets you do a lot other than just downloading music. You can share movies, burn CDs, put it on an MP3 player and listen to it later. If you feel any limitations in the P2P you are using, you can switch to another one or install an upgrade.

These are some of the few ways that can help you make an easy use of P2P sharing. For more detailed information and for technical issues, it is advised to take the help of a networking expert.
