Just had a friend show me this amazing program called OurTunes which is available for mac and pc, and finds music left in itunes.... I can easily pick up 25,621 songs on my wifi connection with it from my dorm room. ;) Spy on your neighbors, find new music, or trick the girl down the hall from you that you like all the same bands. =)

I dont think we have the same idea lanjackal. I just find it incredibly interesting that wifi connections offer p2p now. I think its really interesting especially since I wasn't connected to a wireless network when I downloaded these files. =)

everybody be nice......

WiFi is just networking, fancier and more convenient, but slower. Did you mean P2P within a particular network? That does seem like an odd idea, outside of the campus dorm situation, I suppose. But its been around for a while.

I think in apt complex it wouldn't work. Doesn't everybody have to be on the same network (router, gateway, submask) for OurTunes to work?

ISP's make way too much money selling internet connections to individual apt dwellers. Sharing outside of your home is actually forbidden in most ISP contracts.

Now, where can I go to download "OurPorn"????? Where is the nearest campus?

Hi 939841,

Can you download mp3s via ourTunes? The ourTunes website claims no downloading, just streaming/listening in their FAQ,

3) Is this a Peer to Peer (P2P) program? Aren't those things created by Satan to steal Christmas from Baby Jesus?
It's not "really" a peer-to-peer program, because it doesn't allow you the opportunity to share any files or music.

heh.
I am aware that wifi is networking, hence the "setup wireless network" link in my network connection settings... what I am saying is that I was able to download off wifi WITHOUT being connected to a wifi network. I also disabled my lan connection. I was not aware that this was possible, but I still found it very cool. =)

Also ourtunes has a "download selected" button which downloads any assortment of music file extensions to a preselected folder.

Thanks MrFredPFL, I appreciate your help...

Hi 939841,

It is probably a generational thing (or I'm just dense) but I don't understand how what you are describing could work.

what I am saying is that I was able to download off wifi WITHOUT being connected to a wifi network. I also disabled my lan connection.


Are you connecting directly to other people's computers? or is your computer connecting to other machines (that are on a network) via bluetooth or some other protocol?

Just remember, if you can easily see their stuff, they can (probably) easily see yours too.....

oh I am completely aware that they can see me too. Luckily I keep most of my stuff in truecrypt volumes ;) (encrypted).

I assume it must be something like bluetooth, but from what I can tell I am not connected to ANY network, and I can somehow still see my neighbor's music and download from them. I just thought it was cool. =)

Assuming you're using Windows, start>run "cmd" and "ipconfig /all" in the cmd window will show you current ip addresses for your computer, etc.

Does your browser get web pages when you are disconnected and seeing other peoples files?

The current version of ourTunes 1.3.3 does not work with the Latest version of itunes 7.0.0.70.

Just so you know and knowing is half the battle.


What I use to do is setup local wifi network for my dorm when I was on campus. Most of the beef that schools have with file trading is not the media companies but the totally overload of the school network resources.

With very little sophication you can setup networks that run completely outside of the campus resources.

I use to physical loan people my DVDs, big mistake.
You'll never get them back or they will be melted or scratched.
I would just point them at my file shares.

Me too. If all networks like LANs (no clue if possible), Internet etc. would block filesharing, you could still do it WiFi User-to-User.
