Im looking for an application that searches for computers using the same wireless router/switch/whatever connection and establishes a connection between them, in a p2p file-sharing-network fashion.

Both machines would have to use this same application, of course.

I believe people refer to it as a "darknet"

Is there such an application?

Im in africa and the connection is horrible. It would be fun to start passing files between the locals.

Everytime i want to pass files around it's hell. As using pens here is very dangerous. Average 4 or 5 virus per pen, as my estimate.

Even antivirus are really hard to get on a 56k connection. So, file sharing would help a lot.


Thanx in advanced.

See this thread for details - Reinventing the web

In short -

quote:
After more 2 years working on on off on this project, Unite is finally live.

Unite brings the cloud back to earth and puts a webserver in your webbrowser, allowing you to connect and share your things when you want, with who you want, without giving away anything.

The Reuters coverage of Unite got it right:

quote:* Enables sharing files, pix without uploads, from PC

* Data can be accessed from any browser

...

Opera Software (OPERA.OL) opened a new, free service on Tuesday that enables simple sharing of personal computers' pictures, files or music with anyone on the Internet.

The new service, part of Opera's Web browser, enables direct downloading from personal computer to personal computer and removes any need for data storage at servers in the middle. Files can be viewed with any browser.

Similar technologies have been available before for tech-savvy consumers, but these have required downloading separate software, paying usage fees, or a long process of uploading content -- limiting takeup of services.

Opera has built some sharing services for photos and media into the browser but has also opened up the platform for any developers to build their own sharing services.



For the tech people, Unite is a Webserver API and File IO capabilities for JavaScript. You write a web service in JavaScript using these APIs to listen to HTTP request and respond the way you want, and can store things in a sandbox folder, and access another sandbox folder provided by the user in the properties dialog of the service, and all that is packaged like a widget ( it was just convenient to reuse the same packaging mechanism ). Your service is a daemon, with no chrome, that listens and respond to HTTP requests, can emit requests on its own to fetch data and mash up informations, ...

It's a different mind set and a little confusing at first, but once you ticked and got it, it's really simple and powerful. You've got access to HTML, CSS, Canvas, DOM, SVG, ... on your server and can manipulate things at will. For instance for the thumbnails and preview images in the PhotoSharing I check if I haven't generated the resized image and saved it in the storage sandbox and if the image hasn't changed since, if not, upon request I load the image, resize it using Canvas, export and save it as a JPEG and serve the file.



We know that the bundled services are only scratching the surface of what's possible, but finally my relatives will stop sending me and failling to send 4MB photos on MSN & Skype, and share them in a private and efficient way without losing control.

As I said, there are lots of things we want to play with e.g.:

* turn your machines into your own Open ID provider
* remote adminstration
* files synchronization
* bulk download of files/folders
* turn the media sharing updside down and make it a media center with remote control via the web page so that you can play music on your PA equipement from your computer and change the play list by browsing the admin page using your mobile phone or DSi or Wii or ....
* similiar idea for the Photo Sharing, it would be sweet to have a remote control page for slideshows so that you can navigate using a handheld device and project pictures on your TV, or have a Wii friendly interface ...



Lots of possibilities. The cloud is the limit.

sorry for the delay guys. Life and work are keeping me plenty busy.

Since the initial release of Unite, the stability of the proxy ( operaunite.com , which is merely a convenience to get a human readable URL pointing to your Unite services on your machine ) improved drastically.

Also UPNP works fine now. There is an API to discover the services and devices running on the same network.

Thanks for the update poi!

Now, about that "we wanna know" thread...care to spill the beans, or do they have you under a NDA about it?

FYI, here are some documentations about Unite:

Unite API
Service Discovery API
Unite related articles

And you can get snapshot builds, look for the ones with Unite enabled, on the blog of the Desktop team.


HTH,
