LimeWire

What is LimeWire?
LimeWire is a peer-to-peer (P2P) exchange program for sharing and distributing content on the web. LimeWire allows users to access or share file types such as AVI / MPEG (video), MP3 (music), JPG (pictures), etc.

LimeWire Pro ist kostenlos, während LimeWire Pro eine kostenpflichtige Version ist, die eine schnellere Peerwiedergabe verspricht -zu-Peer- und Download-Geschwindigkeiten. LimeWire läuft unter Windows, MAC OS X, Linux und anderen Betriebssystemen, die von der Java-Softwareplattform unterstützt werden. LimeWire verwendet das Gnutella-Netzwerk und das BitTorrent-Protokoll.

LimeWire enables individual users on the Internet to make music, videos and other files available for direct access to other users. In addition, users can browse other users' computers to find the content they want and download those files.

Limeware does not use a central server to store files. Instead, it transfers files directly from one user's (peer) hard drive to another user's hard drive. This is why the term 'peer-to-peer' applies to limeware sharing.

LimeWire is written in the Java programming language and runs on every computer with an installed Java Virtual Machine. LimeWire version 4.8 or higher functions as a universal plug and play (UPnP) Internet gateway device controller that automatically establishes packet forwarding rules with UPnP enabled routers. Users share a library using Digital Audio Access Protocol.
