Phex is a free file sharing program running on the Gnutella Network.

Multi-plattform support

Whether you use Windows, MAC OS X, Linux (a gentoo-ebuild is avaible via portage) or Solaris Phex is able to run on them all. All you need is a operation system that offers a Java 1.4 Runtime Environment.

Multi-source downloads (Swarming)

Often the file you like to download is available on several different hosts. Phex will request different segments of the file from each host in parallel. After successfully downloading a segment Phex will merge it with the other segments of that file. This results in a much higher download speed.

If a host is too slow the segment is split during download and given to another host. To make sure you never run out of hosts Phex is able to find new download hosts by itself with the automatic search functionality and features the Download Mesh.

You can choose for each download whether the segments should be chosen according to their availability (rarest first, BitTorrent-Style), their place in the file (earlier segments first, useful for previewing the file) or randomly.
