can you give more than one person a key?

ill set one up once im back at skool, but router here makes servers hard to run at home.

From what i see, you dont need a central hub. Anybody can add anybody that gives them a key or is friends of a friend, and then it doesnt matter who's online at the time, you connect to whoever you can.

wait...so the alliance room is not hosted on anyones computer? is it a chatroom set up on some other server?

Because if i give out keys for people to join mine, then in effect their joining the alliance by connecting to me..correct? So isnt the central hub the person handing out keys?

I dunno. From what i get, its like a decentralised private DC hub.

Clicky click
Yep, In the intro it says decentralised, but it appears to use nodes, but i dont think these would have to be the same and online for the network to function. It only takes 1 node to connect to everyone in their friends list to do the searching.

Ok, but no spooning after. :P
When you click the add friends button it generates a code. If you PM me that instead of emailing it should still work.

Just noticed this program, real nice clean interface - did any one set up a room then, whats the verdict?

Also is there public rooms/hubs like DC or is it all private?
