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
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.
