uHub for Linux Publisher's description
from Jan Vidar Krey
A high performance peer-2-peer hub
uHub is a high performance peer-2-peer hub designed for UNIX-like operating systems. The project is written in C, has a clean design and small memory footprint. It is scalable, and will work for small hubs on embedded hardware, as well as big hubs running on high preformance servers with thousands of users.
uHub uses the ADC protocol (ie. the next generation Direct Connect), and is compatible with DC++, Elise, QuickDC and other ADC clients.
Unlike other peer-2-peer networks, ADC is centralized. Clients connect to a central "hub" to communicate with other clients. It can be compared to super nodes (or ultra nodes) in other networks, except the hubs do not openly communicate between each other. The advantage to such a design is that the hubs are in control on who can access the network.
Here are some key features of "uHub":
В· Easy configuration
В· Advanced access control support
В· Ban by network address ranges, nick name or CID
В· IPv4 and IPv6 support
В· Event logging
В· Fast with a low memory footprint
В· Support for chat only hubs (optional)
В· Support for registered users only (optional)
В· Runs as an unprivileged daemon (optional)
System Requirements:В· Mono Project
