Edonkey 2000 question- hashing

Postby Turner » Tue Sep 26, 2006 8:13 am

I have heard that in order to share a file on edonkey2000, it has to be hashed, what is this? When does the hashing occur? Is it true the hashing only occurs after you stop sharing a file for the first time? I remember seeing the words hashing when I once stopped sharing a file.

Thank You

A file needs to be hashed before you can share it. :P

All your questions can be answered by reading this page.
Hashing is a good and necessary thing.
If it were not there you would not be able to tell one file from another.
As file names do you no good.
