|What is Direct Connect and openDCd?:|
Direct Connect is a Peer2Peer Filesharing
System, created by Jon Hess, neo-modus.com.|
All Files in the Direct Connect Network hosted at the Client Machines. If a client want to download a File,
he create a connection to the Client who shares the File and download the File from directly from him.
No Files stored at the Server. If a User is searching for files, the Client sends a Searchrequest over the Server to all other Clients. If a Client have some files that matches the search request, the Client creates a Connection to the Searching User and answering the search request.
