Winny English version.

Postby char » Sat May 29, 2004 5:44 am

What is Winny?
"Winny is a file sharing software aiming to accomplish high throughput and annonymity, with simple
Bullitain Board System.

Winny2 enables mass-scale BBS in addition to the functions of Winny.

Be aware that I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY PROBLEMS raising while your beta testing.
DO NOT USE THESE SOFTWARE FOR ILLEAGAL SHARING OF FILES.
You should reproduce or link etc. according your common sense."

Translate from reademe.html in the Winny2 archive

Introduction of Winny
Winny provides three key features, such as protect users privacy, better file transfer speed,
and increased accessibility of downloadable files.
And Its unique function are automatic download and "Clusternization"

What is "Clusterization"
"Clusterization" is the unique idea of Winny, and it has done in order to raise the ease of obtaining of a file.
The Winny users which exist in near in the network connect each other mutually.
Since there is no central server in Winny network, file information is not manageable unitary.
Winny has taken the method of collecting file information from surrounding users.
However, if the scale of a network becomes large, the exchange infomations with a long distance users will become difficult.
For solution of this problem,Winny will divide group of users who like same kind of files called "cluster".
If you join right claster,You may obtain files more easily.

How to made cluster by Winny
First three keyword called "Cluster word" which make Cluster.Cluster word make clster by Winny system.
Cluster is group of users.It is organically created by the network,not by users.

Clusternization mechanizum is very complicate.I can't understand everything.However I'll explain very very simple.

User A set cluster words of "music" "mp3" "album"
User B set no cluster words
User C set "TV" "avi" "mp3"
User D set same as User A

User A and D conect most easy and strong.
User C and A or D conect next easily.
User A and B,B and C C and D conect not easy and not strong.

Therefore If you need music files.If you set some music related words.
You can easily conecct other users who to your taste.

Compare with other major P2P file sharing softwares.
Protection of privacy for Winny user is not so perfect as Freenet.However Winny is the 2nd place in the field of privacy protection of users.No work can be performed only in Freenet.Freenet system is complicated and its CPU load is high But Winny is simple,CPU load is lower than freenet,and the transfer speed of a file is much higher than freenet.
Bittorent perform more transfer speed than Winny.But user's privacy is open to the other person in the network.eDonkey may be can more easily obtain target file than winny.However, the transmission speed of eDonkey is so late compared with Winny and no privacy protection.
Anonymity of Mute is more than Winny.But Mute is too primitive.It can't resume,It can't download from multiple source.And very slow transfer speed.User of Mute are so small.

Number of Download slots
If your upload bandwidth by Winny is less than 40KBs,Winny allows 2 download slots.After every 40KBs of your uploads,Winny will add one upload slot.

Outline of Winny incident
You may be know about this incident from some newssite.

"47" who has developed Winny for research of new P2P file sharing technology from two years ago.
And It was released as free software.After the release,
The number of Winny users has grown drastically, from 0.5 million to 1 million in 2years
Since Winny was originally developed with a Japanese GUI,users are limitted in Japan now
Even Though the author had said to the user in his website " Do not use Winny for illegal sharing of files",
many users took advantage of anonymity for their illegal activities
The police arressted author because officials believed he developed winny for illigal file sharing.
The officials seized the source code as well as other inforamtion related to the development of WINNY.
Therefore, people are no longer able to update WINNY.

Winny.OLD(backup)
And you neeed fresh noderef.txt
you can get it from here
http://nynode.info/1/Noderef.txt
Save(right click)Noderef.txt to the same folder of Winny.
Winny decide one TCP port for file sharing another one for BBS randomly.
You can confirm those port number push "option" buttom and "connection" tab.
If you are befind NAT,You need port forword TCP port of file sharing.

For French speaking peoples,You can get French version of Winny and info from here
http://li9uid.int.webmatrixhosting.net/wf/default.aspx

I am not recommend Winny for P2P newbie.Because It is quite different system from WinMX,Kazaa or Gnutella.
But if you have tried many kind of P2P file sharing softowares including freenet,Please try and test Winny.

@Coffee
Thanks.I edit to right archive link.

>why use mute when you can use this.
I've tried Mute.I think anonymity of Mute is more than Winny.But Mute is too primitive.It can't resume,It can't download from multiple source.And very slow transfer speed.User of Mute are so small nubers.Another problem is user cannot specify a download folder and a upload folder to be separately.

>search results most with Japanese characters
If your OS is XP and you can read some Japanese characters plaese try this
http://home.comcast.net/~kagamix2/xp-co ... tting.html

Winny was closed source,and Its projact is going to die.I don't know code.I wish code gurus analyze Winny protocol and they develop more advanced software in the future.

Don't be intimidated by Japanese. If you get a translator application like Power Translator and a charactor enabler like NJStar Communicator, it can be quite easy. If someone like me can navigate through Japanese then anyone can.

Last version of Winny by 47 is Winny2b71 but this version have bug.It can't add your upload folder.And 2b71 can't use patch.
There is unofficial Winny2b72 by lark.But since protocol is different from original 47's Winny.2b72 can't connect major Winny network.So English users please ignore warning of newer version.

I think i grasp how this works now,
When you download a file it passes thought other peoples computers just like mute so you dont see who the original computer is, but the diffrence with winny is that when the file passes though transit nodes on towards its destination it actualy stores parts or even the whole file on the transit nodes but the transit node cant tell what its actualy storing as it's encrypted.

Also it speeds up file propagation on the network.

Very nice indeed 8)

Then push "OK"

Please try again.I confirmed I can make new categoly.

Winny's BBS is not perfect.Please remenber this.

About anonymity of Winny's BBS
In BBS of Winny, the contents of a thread are saved in
the BBS folder of the person who stood the thread.
In order to write in the thread which he stood,
it is necessary to connect with he. For this reason,
the identity of thred strater can be specified easily.
However, since there is no record of people written
in the thread after the starter, specification of
the identity of the persons except therd starter is very difficult.

to tsafa
Winny2b71 unpacked version(fixed bug)is here.
http://kyoto.cool.ne.jp/livereg/UnpackedWinny2b71.zip

After 47 released 2b71,Two users in Japan arrested for ilegal file upload by Winny.
See this news
http://www.zeropaid.com/news/articles/a ... 92003a.php
47 was pressed for stop development Winny by the police.
And He was arrested as everyone knows.
So 2b71 is not the best.Many user still use 2b66.
"b" means beta version.
