I will put out a release which is Gnutella and/or Freenet like but with all the messages in Rugby. So that it will be high-level and goes through all firewalls, possibly with built-in security. If people on thes ml will react and test, I can then improve nodes sorting etc. as things develop. There is some stuff known about what is wrong in Gnutella net, but as I improve on that we may learn other things. Although choosing Rugby as transport without a doubs is a bit slower than implementing a P2P protocol direct in TCP the power of what you can do then should compensate for that. Once that works I'll release the source code on a seperate website, hopefully with an Encapped version with a GUI for end users. Using built-in encryption of course ;-) I have been planning this and working on it for some time (as you knew, I think). Gabriele pointed me to this direction some time ago, so many thanks to him as well. Be prepared, Maarten --Maarten
