Hi all,

I'm wondering if it's possible to create a PHP application which acts as a P2P client? Is it possible to create a PHP API on a server which acts as a regular P2P client such as Kazaa or WinMx? I'm pretty sure the answer is "no" but why? I don't know anything about the protocol P2P applications use but perhaps you do. Is it a security issue or just technically impossible to exchange files on a webserver with a regular P2P client?

The poster has demanded we remove all his contributions, less he takes legal action.
We have done so.
Now Tyberius Prime expects him to start complaining that we removed his 'free speech' since this message will replace all of his posts, past and future.
Don't follow his example - seek real life help first.

Most providers also block the php socket functions in shared hosting enviroments - ports are a rare resource for a bigger server.
