Projects / NapShare


NapShare is a fully-automated Gnutella P2P client, made to run unattended. Supply a list of keywords and it will download overnight, also sharing whatever it gets. It has a full GUI using GTK with all the features you would expect from a Gnutella client. All file types are on Gnutella, including MP3, MPG, JPG, TXT, AVI, and more. It interoperates with BearShare, Gnucleus, LimeWire, and others.

            In my opinion it is a step backwards having to edit files to use the automation feature...
            But after all: napshare rules!

            Same thing.
            It still has the same problem it had when I tried it a year or more ago, with "Connection Failed" right away on first startup. I couldn't find any effective answer in the forums, just a long discussion about how many people have had the problem and switched to gtk-gnutella, cuz no developer would help.

            way to go guys!
            NapShare is completely awesome! I used to use
            gtk-Gnutella but now i use this instead. the
            automatic downloading feature is simply brilliant, and
            saves me unimaginable time :) way to go
