read up on this if you want to try it out...


WASTE is a software product and protocol that enables secure distributed communication for small (on the order of 10-50 nodes) trusted groups of users.

Here is the link... http://www.nik.com.au/waste/waste-setup.exe

Has anyone tried this? I DLoaded it but haven't had the chance to try it yet.

BTW here is a related story about this S/W...
" A day after developers at America Online's Nullsoft unit quietly released file-sharing software, AOL pulled the link to the product from the subsidiary's Web site. "

Haven't seen that, but the same thing could be easily setup with a private VPN between buddies. The client software is built into Windows.

I never tried it that way, how hard do you think it would be to set up on XP Pro?

hmm wonder what kind of sercurity leaks there maybe using that.
