...'cos much as I like Piolet in a single machine set-up, it's really a non-starter when you put a router in the equation.

you can download the beta version of Frostwire with no trouble at all from their website and it just works! (could do with some controls for the player tho', but there's no hurry for that). the download/install routine(s) have been well thought-out and there is little or no fiddling about necessary before use. hey, try it.

yep, you're absolutely right...it's fast and furious, unless hindered by the firewall/router factor and there's the rub! if you don't have these factors to contend with, Piolet will (still) do it for you...'first-class for music and speed!

the Frostwire/Limewire/Limewire Pro option(s) are simply a suggestion for those who are stumped and need an alternative. 'will always recommend Piolet, but it would be nice if someone would provide a definitive solution to the existing shortcomings with it.

warm regards to all

because all have Routers and don't know how to configure ;)

also many seem not to know MP2P as is is very good and still not too many users..

I have router, needed not much but UDP/TCP for the specific port, and some for Downloading.
Not a big thing if there aren't other problems.

What i really dislike: if you havent opened the port, it does like NOTHING. gets 0 responds. does only say "connecting..". makes you give up. Like if the right port is ok for TCP but not UDP and you wonder why it sits there like a paralized stone. and guess the peercache is outdated or something.

I tried Piolet again for the first time in ages. Even though it's still the same version (1.05), now that I'm on broadband it's a different experience.

I wasn't impressed by the range of tracks, but I was very impressed with the speed of the downloads and the fact that they downloaded immediately; they weren't queued for ages like in eDonkey/eMule.

eD2k is only useful to download large files, and then let it run for some (or some more) hours (movies, full albums).

Piolet has no queues, is very fast, but also doesnt have much crap like fakes. If you can get connected, it's a very useful network.

I also recommend Piolet beta 1.8.3 ore Clean Blubster. Clean and good.
