    BitTorrent site : www.suprnova.org . It's free, but I frequently get slow d/l rates as it's really popular at the moment.

    Normal P2P : www.limewire.com . Like Kazaa (Some spyware installed! But easily removed). It's look ok so far; I've only been using it a while.
    Has limewire improved over recent years? It's a bit like FileTopia IMO.

    What I did was downloaded normal limewire, and searched for limewire pro and downloaded it from limewire standard! lol

    Sometimes the originals are better, like eMule. Can never get the hang of eMule Plus. :confused:

    Since this is a general p2p thread I was wondering. If you have a data link where you can access the internet from your study room in Halls, can you use p2p on your own laptop there? If so are there limitations? anybody at university who can tell me? There are also some sites I was unable to access at college who uses CyberPatrol (non-porn) which were barred. Do universities use filters for websites too?

    Limewires never let me down.
    Agreed.

    Limewire or overnet are good.

    I expect most universities will use smart-filters for any connections that go through their networks. The filters don't just block porn, they usually block warez and p2p sites as well. If a site's vaguely illegal, it'll be blocked. SysAdmins are nice like that.

    Thanks for that. P2P will hardly be a priority at university even if I could. Make the most of uni while you are there

    For some strange reason a board game site was blocked at my college by CyberPatrol. But that's a different matter. I will have to sort this out, although I might be able to see admin

    You see I use eMule which downloads onto my external hard disc so I don't know if the implications are any different that using p2p etc through your laptop. Could always find out at Freshers.

    When I first used the two I preferred eMule. Had rare files, better quality etc and I always had a high ID back then. Now having a LAN things are different now.

    I'm very surprised noone's mentioned DC++, it's fairly decent, however bittorrent (using the bit tornado client) is easily the best p2p in my opinion. especially with loads of downloads available everywhere, you can get looooaads of stuff (viz. www.supernova.org)

    For reliability I would recommend emule http://www.emule.tk and maybe DC++

    You receive a lot less fake files with emule, it's a lot slower than kazaa or DC++ but in my experience I feel that all that extra time you search for a legitimite file, you might as well search on emule and download it using that. In fact, it has saved me time on many instances.
    Someone has mentioned DC++!
