Yesterday, I was introduced Direct Connect to share files P2P by my Steam friend. This is the first time I'm using as such so I may need some advice. He says that this is the same as torrent, the only difference is that there are no torrent files. We only have to select which files do we want to download using a DC software like DC++
You can browse through a user's files.
Select which one do you want to download.
Files are uploaded in blocks, much like torrenting.
There's a chat room.
The chat room can accept IRC-like command, depending on the script on the hub.
Privacy is an issue.
You IP address is revealed to whoever you are connected to. But I think this can be hidden.
He wanted to start a hub so I'm currently assisting him with hub moderation. We named it BakaDC (we have no idea what to name), a DC hub to share anime. The hub address is bakadc.zaptop.org:411
