With Napster - when a user logs on, they get assigned to one
of the Napster servers. You have an upload directory and
the listing of that directory is transferred to the local
Napster server. Any other user on that server is able to
search for a string (eg song title), and the Napster server
returns a list of which clients have a match for that
string. The user can then start a file transfer from one of
those clients. You select which client to initiate the file
transfer based upon 'ping' results.
Gnutella has a slightly different model.
Sounds to me as though /Express would be quite suited for
this application except for the cost of the client licenses!
