A P2P daemon, which requires a network protocol such as openFT or gnutella. Any number of frontends are also recommended.
So far, giFT has proved to do what it is made for. Most problems will appear to me to be the fault of the frontend, but there may well need to be certain features inserted into either the openFT protocol, the giFT daemon or the frontend.. it's difficult to say.
The software hasn't had an update since 07 May 2005!
2005 or earlier ∞
- Be able to throttle individual users
- Better user management
- Be able to define a position in the queue based on the amount shared
People who I am downloading from should be sent to the head of the queue if they download from me
Apollon seems to be a nice client, and it does other networks as well.
A curses-based frontend to giFT
So far, I approve. There are some not insignificant problems as far as a lack of features, but this client works as expected.
Yes, I have been able to segfault giFTcurs.. fear me.
