best file sharing P2P
Posted by: anrewmiller 2002-05-24 11:43:43
Out of all the P2P applications out there, which p2p file-sharing technology gives best performance? Lots of people suggested kazaa. Can anybody comment on that?

DC++
Posted by: manlyhappy 2011-02-09 12:19:44 In reply to: anrewmiller
I prefer less anonymous programs. I use DC++. It's more restrictive, but you find much more rare stuff than the usual junk shared on P2P. I'm a member of a small classical music community for instance and we often hit the 40TB of cds shared. Check us out if you like to share with us www.doucement.org You'll find out how to join us on that site.

i suggest Zevera!! because you can download any link without failure

LIMEWIRE PRO
Posted by: thadondatta 2008-06-16 22:10:18 In reply to: anrewmiller
THEIR IS NO BETTER THAN LIMEWIRE PRO. PRO IS FILTERED, FAST, AND GIVES GREAT RESULTS. i HIGHLY RECOMEND IT. REGULAR LIMEWIRE IS OK BUT YOU DO HAVE TO WATCH OUT FOR VIRUSES. I GOT A COUPLE WORMS MY FIRST FEW TIMES USING IT. TRUST ME PAY THE 20 SOMETHING BUCKS, ITS MONEY WELL WORTH SPENT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Limewire Pro
Posted by: dollyman 2009-02-21 02:27:40 In reply to: thadondatta
Thats a joke!!

I used Limewire Pro which ran perfect until the first virus got me. Totally screwed up my hard drive to the point of having to rip it out and replace with a new one.

Also had the highest available version of Zone Alarm AV installed yet it still got thru that!

Lets face it Kazaa is the best, the only downfall is the spyware that comes with it. These a simple solution download kazaa lite resurrection. Kazaa without the crap. http://filesharingplace.com/downloads/kazaa_lite_resurrection.php
What makes a file sharing program good it the amount of people using it. I recommend using the two best and sticking to them kazaa light res and a new one Shareaza.

Next time I might give you one of them so that you can post a real site.in fack here go here (sharevirus.com) This is how it works. see what you want and press download.. but this www.gigatribe.com SUCKS.

I've read this forum all the way down and beyond and I must say it really sucks, I really wanted to know what the best sharing program was, i've tried limewire, bearshare, all the kazaas, I-mesh, bittorrent, Ares, Azureus, Lphant, eMule and many more... could someone PLEASE answer my question the right way BTW LIMEWIRE RULES!!!!!

Re: best file sharing P2P
Posted by: Kurvacious 2006-06-16 15:33:51 In reply to: anrewmiller
Right peeps!!...Get it right!!!!!!
both kazaa and limewire are full of spyware and
-kazaa- (most importantly!) slows ur computer down good n propa! i have 512 hard drive and 12mb internet connection and my pc (mainly internet pages) were almost at a stand still!n
-warez- brought up allsorts of crap when using search engine, i'd ask for shrek 2 and it brought up...save the last dance!...wots all that about?
-Winmx- was the best for me....but i was daft enough 2 do a pc restore, when i came to retrieve it, they had started charging fee! damn!
-bittorrent- i have been using this since then, i deleted it 4 times originally, but after much pursuasion and research I decided to give it another go. It's complicated to figure out at 1st, but once you get the hang of it it's quite good. it's not so good for older songs, even 80's but u can get albums no problem. It's just single songs that are a problem. And also it takes a bit more effortthan ur usual p2p. U download from different internet sites. But the best one is Torrentspy.com (once u've already downloaded the bittorrent program). And if ur looking for specificatio9n, then they do have different sites for different tastes. such as music videos, porn etc.
Google "best p2p" then look for afterdawn forum comments. One user goes into great detail explaining each website, how good they are and what they are good for!!
Overall I'm quite happy with bittorrent, it is very fast and it's quite good for getting the new stuff!!
Hope i was of sum help!

BEARSHARE
Posted by: GARGAMEL 2006-03-30 22:37:33 In reply to: anrewmiller
You guys are forgetting about BEARSHARE!, it is by far better when it comes to download speed and file search. Let me tell you, if you are so damn worried about spyware-adware on the P2P networks that might come bundled, it is easy to keep them from messing with your connections, and stupid ad popups! First make sure your your firewall will catch any attempt by the adware/spyware connecting out your PC. When the third party software, which is not the main P2P software that is trying to connect, simply click no, and put a checkmark that says always do this, or what ever your firewall says when it pops up a messege, and also make sure you have a registry controller, that's your firewall or antivirus might have bundled with, it will also popup and ask you about the spyware/adware connection attepts! I don't have any problems or issues with these P2P file sharing softwares, I am pretty aware of what might happen, it's all about control, keep control of what you do with your PC. *Gargs*

I just did the following test...
I searched for rare movies by a not-so-well-known Chilean director. Search entry: "Jodorowsky"
Results:
ARES: no results even after 15 min.
LIMEWIRE: no results even after 15 min.
SHAREAZA: no results even after 15 min.
eMULE: Almost instantly returned a pageful of results: all his movies in different formats and languages/subtitles + many TV interviews and documentaries. There you have it.
As for iMESH, I just tried to install 6.0 and guess what - on first opening it won't connect. I went and checked out their support forums. Hmm... all sorts of problems reported there, including mine. They advised to check and configure my firewall properly, this and that port, you know. Well, before I did that, I just lowered the firewall altogether and tried to connect again; SAME problem (blank "registration" screen). Programs like that I can do without.
Forget WinMx, they now make you pay for it.
So as for eMULE, it's not the fastest, but it is multi-user and you gets your file whole and verified in the end. Also it lets you preview video content. But it is definitely for nerds or those with some patience to learn the basics (the knowledge base is very thorough.)

i searched ares galaxy 2.0.9.3030 for jodorowsky and got back over 100 results within less than 15 seconds and all results were relevant not rubbish if your not having success with ares i'd be looking at your configurations i suspect somthing is wrong. and make sure you are using authentic ares software there are several fakes using their name.
allso there are companies such as OUT-LAW.COM that are leagally employed by the likes of hollywood and the music industry to seed hundreds of decoy files into most or all p2p operations making it increasingly difficult to download the file you were looking for. this is becoming more and more of a problem especially if your going after a movie that is still showing at cinemas or just been released on dvd. you get heaps of results from your search and they all look promising but what you get is either somthing completely unrelated or perhaps the movie preview stitched together several times to make up a movie sized file. it sucks but then i suppose everyone likes to get paid for their work don't they

I just did a search on "Jodorowsky" using Shareza, it instanly retured the following results" 146 files in 209 hits, searching 2230 hubs,116354 leaves. Shareza has no spyware, it works very well, the speed of downloads is determined by who you are connected to, more than your connection speed.

how do you download for free on kazza

Re: best file sharing P2P
Posted by: drock369 2006-01-04 22:08:19 In reply to: anrewmiller
You may want to try DC++ (direct connect), free files sharing http://dcplusplus.sourceforge.net/
the program is a little more complicated than the usual limewire/kazaa and you only download from one user at a time. You select the hubs you would like to connect to, some are restricted to you share size. The amount of files available in these hubs far outweighs many of the other files P2Ps. Also while speeds can vary for downloading often you can achieve speeds of over 50kb/s from a user. Here you can add to favorites, then download their file list to see what they have. Overall people here take downloading more seriously, and you will find fewer viruses/spam.

Hi there,
Does anybody knows the best file sharing program to download music videos?
I have Limewire and i have to say it is the best for music, though the video search doesn't allow you to imput the artist name, so you get thousands of files that aren't related with your search.
Any ideas?

Hi people
My p2p software (Ares) seems to take too long to connect to a movie or song (approx 10 mins). This is really frustating and am seeking for advice and help.
Please post a reply with any help or advice asap

Posted by: ggghhh57 2005-06-25 14:39:59 In reply to: anrewmiller
Lime Wire is I think the best p2p out there. There is no crap that comes along with it. Just pure and simple, and very clean. Visit lime wire @ limewire.com

Re: best file sharing P2P
Posted by: bwalker59 2008-03-26 18:37:40 In reply to: ggghhh57
Limewire is okay and after trying all the other garbage P2P programs I keep coming back to Limewire. The only problems I experience are the file base seems to be getting smaller and the download times seem to be getting longer! Also, I get discouraged when I begin to transfer a file and after hours, sometimes days, when it gets to 90% the host decides to leave town! Shareaza has a more extensive file base but they're even slower! Will be glad when someone develops a P2P program with super fast transfer time!

P2P - Top 8(rather ranked.. best to worst)
Posted by: coldestiniowa 2005-06-01 19:08:50 In reply to: anrewmiller
Yeah. definitely have to agree.. by and far, ares is the least headache. There are several that are okay runners up, here is my list of favorite
1. ares (just plain and simple)
2. warez (clone of ares, different network though.. decent enough for someone sick of others)
3. kazaa (plain old regular version ; official version) is actually the best (tried lite and resurrection and they suck). Say what you want.. but if you use Norton/antivirus and adblocker and have decent computer (even as old as PII - 350MHz) it works okay.. Does lag computer this old.. really bad. But newer Computer works well.. Thus said, I prefer not to use Kazaa.. got sick of it.. But it works okay
4. Piolet, I think this is another ares/warez clone.. Decent enough, not enough users though.. and it's spanish based... so I think a lot of users are geared towrds different language. Still decent.. reliable
5. BitTorrent clients.. Would be #1 or #2 if I could get it to work on my computer. But I can't get my ports to work with it.. Something about forwarding ports to router... I have tried everything to get it to work, but can't get ports to work.
6. Shareaza... Didn't much care for this.
7. WinMX... I think this program accesses too many networks.. especially Gnutella/based networks.. which are always slow because of all the bandwidth generated by these types of networks...
8. Gnutella/based clients... all these suck pretty much because of all bandwidth used to maintain network and to search.. Even if you found lots of instances of file you wanted, it will take forever to d/l if even at all. It's not that I don't like the programs... I love these client's interface so much.. OMG, if they actually worked for me I would never use anything else. But they have NEVER worked for me... So I don't use any of these

Re: best file sharing P2P
Posted by: GoNavyMike 2005-01-17 13:44:08 In reply to: anrewmiller
WinMX is best for Songs if you know how to set your settings. Filecroc www.filecroc.com is a good one for all programs...movies...songs...software...etc...another widely used one is eMule www.emule-project.net But it's downloads contain alot of viruses. I've learned that you definitely want to have an active anti-virus program running that is up to date on the virus definitions. Also, it is a good idea to make a folder just for your p2p downloads so as you won't clutter other files on your PC and before opening any of the downloads you should tell your Anti-Virus program to scan that folder. I've learned the hard way...I had to reformat my hard drive 3 times in less than 2 months due to viruses and spyware. Anyone have ideas as to what the best Spyware removal is? or what the best Anti-virus program is?

hey dude
by far the best anti-virus program that i've ever used is AVG Free by Grisoft, and as you might have guessed by the name; it's free. They have regular updates which are also free and a great email scanner and program controls. It doesn't look as stylish as the other a-v programs out there but who cares, it's funcional looking. It works beautifully and doesn't interrupt you PC while you're working or at startup. You can download it at www.avgfree.com

WHAT ARE YOU ALL SMOKEING!!!!! KAZZA SUCKS ASS...NO EFFENSE...ill give you a few reasons why!
1.Has viruses...and im positive.
2.Has a lot of spyware in it.
3.Slows down your computer.
4.Too many people use it so it begins to slow down.
5.It messes up your computer!
Anyways if you love downloading music and movies and crap like that the best and fastest...and when I say fastest I mean SUPERRRRRR FAST!!! is called Bittorrent...www.bittorrent.com
This sharing p2p file is fast but I must admit, it is very complicated to use but you will eventually learn. But also a really good one I use is limewire. It has no spams, viruses, doesnt slow down your computer, no spyware! www.limewire.com

Hey johnnyboy1992,
I just want to say to you, the P2P application you say is best in use (that means simple in use for people who just want to have a lot of easy, but very good download-fun), I can fully agree with that.
I must say, I have just chosen this forum by giving up a querie in google, and in about one minute, I can only confirm your reaction. I know it is a bit late, while the first reaction was first given in 2002, and a lot can have been changed..............but............
I have been using Limewire, free version for two years now, just an option by a friens at the time. I had already tried a lot of other p2p-filesharing programs at the time, at yep...of course Kazaa.
Well, my comment on all the other p2p-programs is very simple, and excuse me if I don't make myself clear enough (I'm Dutch, so my English might be insufficient to make myself clear),I think (my oppinion) they can't compete themselves with Limewire free version. The Pro Version (read: paid version is also oke, but finds even less options than the free version) you can skip that one..........Just try the free version, at the time writing 4.8.1. Even the ICT-manager at mu office tried this, and he never wanted anything else from that moment on. Of course he was useng Kazaa and Shareaza at that time.
I can only say try Limewire Free, Graphically a very fine and easy to use/learn version and a lot of fun. johnnyboy1992 you can email me anytime, because I think you hit the jackpot here!!!!
To all the new Limewire-users here...........find out yourself and know you met the best p2p-file sharing program..........

imesh definitly is the best p2p sharing program. although it doesnt have as many users as kazaa or edonkey, its downloading speed is the best.its ability to use several sources at the same time is awsome.u can easily download a complete movie in one and a half hour.

Kazaa is fairly rubbish. Winmx is the least user friendly file share program out there. Emule or the edonkey have the biggest range of files and the most users, though download time is fairly poor due to enforced sharing. These two programs also had an amaizing links page, called sharereactor which had a massive archive of genuine files and descriptions. Sadly this site is no longer with us. If you can master the Bittorrent program then you can get some truly amaizing download speeds, but you can only get one file at a time. Shareaza is easily the best file sharing program that I have used up until today. If you want to use the Bittorrent programs then check out suprnova.net for a huge archive of torrents.

I agree, even Kazaa Lite is fairly rubbish however, it is the best I have found, without ads/spyware for a PC. Acqlite is alot better than any other file share program i have used, better interface, no ads, but download times can be slow on large files. However is only available for Mac OS. Going to try Shareaza see how that is.

I would say, until there is an obfuscated/encrypted p2p network, I won't touch it. Even if the chances of getting caught are slim, the chances of getting caught on an encrypted p2p network are much slimmer.

Re: best file sharing P2P
Posted by: gambit 2005-05-07 14:19:34 In reply to: Oriumpor
Did someone say encrypted obfuscated network? Then try http://www.myjavaserver.com/~gwren/home.jsp?page=custom&xmlName=ants
aka ANTS
ANts P2P realizes a third generation P2P net.
It protects your privacy while you are connected and makes you not trackable,
hiding your identity (ip) and crypting everything you are sending/receiving from others.
Downloads are realized by swarming through nodes downloading the same file, using a non-deterministic and stocastic process of data distribution. This grants a very good "dispersion" of the information among nodes, without having a central tracker like the one required by BitTorrent.

Kazaalite is the best all round general purpose p2p, but the best for music downloads is WinMX

i have tried shareaza ,imesh ,kazaa and kazaa lite!!! and serioulsly with a cable connection the best is kazaa lite! i can download an entire mouvie in approx 2 hour...shareaza isnt working as it was,i dont know why...but personally i think that if we have a lot of file to share kazaa is very fast !!!

No!! no... do yourself a big favor and get Kazaa LITE (kazaalite.com) It's free.
Lite has no spyware, Kazaa does.
If you have Kazaa installed I suggest you get "ad-aware", free from download.com
I found 36 instances of spyware on my neighbor's computer, it ran a lot faster after the cleansing. The startup time alone was cut in half after erasing all those spyware reg entries.

KaZaa's search function takes the cake, letting you hunt for any kind of file or target your quest for music, video, software, images, or documents. Get KazaA it is the best file-sharing ....the fastest and with more results.........i personally use it for software and videos

well I think kazaa is good, but what can I use in Linux? Because GiFT isn't working properly... A file sharing application must have good compatibility between platforms, don't you all think? eMule is slower but better to find contents, and KaZaA is not my preferred one.

Yes, I too am looking for a good Linux file sharing program without spyware. Anyone have any suggestions? Is there anyway to run WinMX in the Linux environment?

all of these program's performances depend upon where you download them from. some independent programmers have made available completely ad and spyware free versions of kazaa lite. google search this>>> rocko, kazaa. you will find a good version of kazza lite there. i use it and it is very fast. sometimes i achieve speeds of 50kbs or more. i allow 7 uploads and 10 downloads and use all the kazaa tools available. kazaa supernodes can help you find the best computer to use for your connection. a cable modem and a good anti-virus/security program are a must.

ok .. using Kazaa is bad i don't care if it's lite or not it's still bad i had kazaa and it practiacally destroyed my computer even with norton antivirus.... i had to reinstall windows and everything so avoid kazaa completely at alllll costs
i've had alooot of p2p programs kazaa, kazaa lite, imesh, shareazea, morpheas, and now ares. i feel the best one is definetly ares all the way ..i get super fast downloads i can download a whole song in less then 10 seconds i hit like 120 kbs and 500 kbs on software and programs plus ares has never ever given me a virus and no adware or spyware and is 100% SAFE... next up i liked imesh it was fast and safe but all around ares is alittle bit faster and more reliable

the best would be Bearshare @ bearshare.com but thats only if you dont mind having a computer that that can only dl and use p2p network clients and not the internet otherwise the very best would be KazAa Lite Plus Plus if you dont mind the never connect feature and the crappy dl speeds but overall the best would have to warez fast connection fairly fast downloads e.g. i dled an iso of Halo in about 5 minutes thats 650 mb to 700 mb

i use to have ares and i slowed my entire com down a ton i almost wasnt able to run it at all when i got rid of it my com got better and worked fine... but ares was the best if it didnt do that to my com ide still have it. but some of the problem could of been the amount downloaded from it
and i agree kazaa is nothing but trouble but the lime wire [free virsion] doesnt have alot to choose from in my opinion and some of the vids well alll the vids i tried dont work eather.

I tried Kazza lite, I-mesh, Shareaza, and Limewire, and I think that Limewire is the best in all of this program. You can get almost anything in Limewire especially movies, its always available to download. If you want to download Japanese Animation for example, I would recommend Limewire. I tried to use Shareaza and the files are there but it is not always available to download. Same thing with Kazza Lite. Bittorent is also recommendable but it is hard to use. I've heard that mIRC is the best place to download movies, but I don't know how to use it. Does anybody here knows how to use mIRC? Pls. let me know

Re: the BEST of the BEST....
Posted by: athame 2005-12-29 10:23:46 In reply to: Jossana
Mirc has a very good speed, though not all the time... Sometimes the host has a poor connection, which means it doesn't matter even if you have dsl or cable or even leased line coz if your host is connecting via phone, you'd still have a slow download rate... One more thing, it's only for patient people... Queues are terrible there... You must also know a lot of channels coz some channels doesn't offer files for downloads, but its easy to find them... Most of the channels though are for chats even the channels that offer downloads... LAstly, you must know the commands, and you must read plenty of their rules! Each channels have their own... I suggest, unless you've got nothing to do, stay with P2P...

Re: the BEST of the BEST....
Posted by: bearDOG 2006-04-08 23:47:54 In reply to: adrianveidt66
Limewire sucks, badly. as do kazaa, imesh, and morpheus. MIRc is much better, or was.. seems that during the time i had to use dial up something happened and i can rarely even get a file sent to me. but since that happened i have been using limewire. it has slow downloads(rarely over 70k -- after being used to very rarely seeing under 115 with mirc) and incorrect file names.. for instance today, i tried to download Jarhead, and in the first scene there was a woman gettin banged on the table, now I havent seen the movie yet but im pretty sure its not supposed to start out that way. and the sad part is, Limewire is still better than other p2p programs. bottom line mirc is the way to go, if you can use it.

Here is one to avoid!!! http://mp3-freebie.com You think you're giving them information for an initial exchange. You think you'll have the option to back out before it goes through. But once they get your card info, you are f*d! They also make you think it will only be 1.66 per month but they multiply that by 2 years and in addition (even though you don't ask for it charge you $15.48 for virus protection even if you already have the best. In addition to that, they charge another $9.95 for a so-called Pro version. Wait it gets even better! Like I said, you can't contact them to tell them "no" or anything once you type in the info proving you have a method of payment. Automatically it says, Congratulations (Sucker) then tells you the amount they are taking from you. a whopping $64.07. After that, you can try e mailing them all night long telling them they tricked you and you're not interested. Too bad. They just got your money. Now for the bitter end.....
Here is what they give you...Ready??
Limewire Pro. You can get that for $18.00 from Limewire themselves. I tried to e mail Limewire to see if they are affiliated in any way but have yet to hear from them. I was so ticked off I had to report my Visa stollen. Well what else should I have done? There is another site with that same name but I don't know much about it.
So as I learned a long time ago...
Screw me once?..shame on you!
Srew me twice?? Shame on me!
Take care out there!

Hmmm from what i can tell the only 2 really good P2P programs out there are Ares and Limewire. While ares has a load a crap that has no relation to your searches it has tons of things you wouldn't be able to find any other way.
Limewire while its search results may not come up to being a lot allow you to browse the host of a file you want to see if you want anything else from them.
Both of these programs have excellent networks and i Rarely and i mean RARELY disconnect from them and most of it is due to stupid spam from messeges from people i dont even know half the time. But none the less my points remain valid and i think most of you get the idea because i've seen atleast 4 posts all with Limewire and Ares listed as one of the bests.

You also have some ways to share your private files without making them public. You can use software like Allpeers or Podmailing, it's the best way if you want to share files quickly with your friends.
