    Ok, well basically this guy i know online got me some music. Stuff that i couldnt find on any torrent tracker, and when i asked him where he got it he said a private dc hub. So i was wanting to know

    1. What is a dc hub?
    2. How does it work? Is it like torrent where you have to upload a certain amount to download? What software do you use?
    3. Can anyone get me access to a dc hub that has good indie/rock/alternative music (scene releases)?

    1. DC stands for Direct Connect. Hubs are direct servers that the clients connect to. The hubs provide information about the clients and allow for file searching, but transfers are peer-to-peer.

    2. I never got into DC, but from what I remember, you need to share (or make available to share) a large amount to get in to good hubs. I'm not sure how important ratios are. The standard program is DC++.

    3. Sorry, don't know much about DC. Check out though, maybe it'll help you out.

    As an alternative for hard to find music, I recommend Soulseek. It's really slow for me, but I've found stuff on there that I've never seen elsewhere.

    These Hubs are also relatively easy to run. But for diversity and speed of file-sharing, then it's OpenNap all the way. Most servers do have a min_share though. Mine start at 4 files to 50 files on my busier servers.
