Winmx seems to be already really secure.
For instance; If i connect using a secondary connection then i am connecting to a peer running a primary connection, and all my searches are routed through the peer with the primary connection; in other words the primary peer is doing the searching for me.
His machine acts as a server or a man in the middle so to speak.
Once the peer on the primary connection finds the file i am looking for then am i connecting directly to the peer with the file or does my traffic get routed through the client with the primary connection, and then back to me?
So does the primary client only assist in finding the files for the secondary or does it also act as an exit node as described in the above senario?
Thank You Silver Stripes! You answered all my questions.
It would be the most unique, and secure P2P client ever created.
The whole network would be an anonymous with each client acting as a multi-hop exit node.
once the 2gb limit is uncapped there will be so many more.
So what protocol is the current client using for file transfer between clients
and what protocol is it using for messaging in chat rooms?
