I use giFT and giFTcurs. It works for me. Speeds are usually very good, everything seems to move along quite quickly and smoothly, and there's a fairly large amount of stuff there. I use both gnutella, openft and fasttrack.

What's the point in having loads of rarities on edonkey and so forth if you can never get hold of them?!

giFT is good if you just need a file quickly. Search, bash a few keys, find something else to do for three minutes and then enjoy.

giFTcurs is also a great little client. It's got a smooth and efficient interface and supports the mouse on compatible terminals (which is pretty much all of those you would use on Linux). That said, I've never used the mouse with it once.

Many file sharing programs seem to have difficulty on 64 bit architectures, but in my experience giFT is far and away the most stable.

Okay I emerged gift, but I cant get any other interface but apollon, which is totally unacceptable, since I REFUSE to install kde-base, so is there any alternative for an interface.

giftui is normally fairly nice. giftcurs is alright.
Also, remember that if you're having trouble with gnutella, run:
$ sh /usr/portage/net-p2p/gift-gnutella/files/cacheupdate.sh

Hi all,

I'd like someone to suggest a good p2p software. I use E16 as WM and I've been using gtk-gnutella as P2P. Not that I'm disliking it but I'd like to try others. Are there any suggestions?

Cheers,

Paulo Matos

It just an advice what you could try.

If you will see that gtk-gnutella is better let

Thanks.

I move usually over the ed2k network, so i would recommend you to try mldonkey, aMule (GUI version or daemon, amuled... See aMule wiki to get it working), and ed2k (not the GUI version, but the clc ones, controlled with ed2k-gtk-gui...). Here the best one depends on what files are you trying to download, by now i am using ed2kclc (hybrid core) and it's performing great... This one is distributed in a closed source binary, free as a beer could be. The ed2k-gtk-gui is open source, free as a beer could not ever be.

cheers

(About wxGTK 2.6... it's in portage, but masked --> ls /usr/portage/x11-libs/wxGTK <-- )

I am looking for some nice file sharing software that I would like to use to share some of my files on my Linux system with a XP system on the same network. I tried Samba, but it wasn't really what I was looking for, perferably, I would like something thats easy to set up becuase I am kind of new at the whole/file sharing networking thing in a way. Anyways, which ever apps you guys like/have tried that work well, please post some info about them. Thanks.

What exactly are you looking for? Give us some more information to work with.
Like why Samba wasn't what you were looking for...
Do you just want to share files between your linux and windows box?
How about an ftp server?

Well theres Limewire which uses Gnutella to connect. It is more like standard filesharing apps. Then theres the Bittorrent apps which use bittorrent to connect. With the bittorrent clients you search an array of trackers to get a download so its a little more of a pain but its much harder to bust you on because the logs are scattered. There are a lot of apps that use Bittorrent, I like ktorrent but there is also azureus, bittornado, bittorrent, ctorrent, qtorrent, rtorrent and maybe more ;-)

I don't think that's the kind of file sharing he's looking for.
But if you do want something to download uhm "stuff" with I would suggest bittorent.

If you're using KDE it has a Public Filer Server built in. Easy as starting it then picking the folder to share. (OS independent)

If you have ssh installed on your linux machine then it should be easy enough to use winscp from the windows machine to copy files from and too the linux machine.

If you're responding to Varean's question, I disagree. Why use a Gnutella client for LAN transfers?

Plus if it's not in portage, I don't want it. :P
