    Project Private p2p software

    I am looking for p2p software for about 40-50 people.

    File sharing, real time chat and what not is needed. Any OS is fine.

    We need it private so only authorized users have access, plus we also need admin.

    Maybe some of u have recommendations.

    Its a interesting project once things get done.

    more info

    Well heres a little more info

    Weve got a few servers, and are coloing them in a datacenter in chicago.

    It will be a solid connection, plus we can expand to a few other major datacenters if need be.

    So are bandwidth capablities are large. Are hardware is solid.

    Are problem is the configurations. A few people have mentioned direct connect with the hub module.

    Some others have mentioned Hotline server, or samba

    How I would like it is this

    Central Server
    Then authorized users connect.

    We've got about 15k files so it is small and want it to remain small.

    Just lookin for decent software for managment. It is very critical to only have authorized users have access

    Hopefully that helps

    Joe



    Let me know if this will solve are needs

    Personally, I'd just do GLftpd with a membership system of some sort... Hire a PHP programmer to make a backend with a membership system, so people can goto a web control panel, change password, update details....

    Then just use standard ftp....


    The above mentioned system should work fine for your needs though...

    But then this would not be p2p software would it? They would have to keep all the files on a server.

    Jbiz tell me if i am wrong here.. You are looking for a server or hub of some kind to run on a server and know where all the files on end users computers so your downloading files right from there computer right? This keeps you from having to put every thing on the server.

    Kind of like KaZaA or Morpheus p2p systems where when you search you find files on other users systems.

    Answer

    Well not exactly.

    We have a central server lets call it server chicago

    Then we have about 50-75 users . Now centrally all 15k files are stored on chicago. Then the users will be able to log in and upload or download files.

    Its not really peer to peer, but sort of close. The thing is i got the hardware, i got the datacenters i like, i just am not sure of the software.

    I'd do some sort of ftp.. Pretty plain and simple stuff...

    Although might not be your best idea.. Depends on how much work you want to do and wha the purpose of this will be...
