P2P on Internet2

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 30 Apr 2004 15:27 User comments (8)

P2P on Internet2 A new P2P boom has began to spread on the super-fast Internet2, the research network used by several universities around the world. The network can't be accessed directly by any of the regular ISPs, but is still available for most of the students who have broader Net access rights on universities with Internet2 connections.
The new form P2P seems to be growing around the mega-popular DC++ P2P software that is widely used in "traditional Internet" as well, but the difference is that all of the users are connecting to a hub that is located within the Internet2 -- a restricted zone from "outsiders", people who can access only the good old Net. Transfer speeds can, and often will, reach to levels where the HDD speed is the limiting factor, not the Net connection.

It seems someone wants to get banned..

Thats a incomplete file download. No reason to get banned for that, after all, we dont know what the file is until its complete.

What dRD really meant was that he should get banned because he's still using a Kazaa, a piece of shitty software that can be counted as bad as a virus. Let's hope it's Lite. ;)
