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! -- Graham Chiu
