Thread: Need A Good Filesharing Program

  1. #1
    Hi,

    I was wondering what file sharing program you guys recommend using. I've used ares for awhile, but since it's no longer being developed I haven't been able to connect to download anything. I've tried limewire several times, but I never find what I need and usually end up with a virus on my pc and emule takes forever to download files. Are there any good file sharing programs left?

    I highly recommend Soulseek. http://www.slsknet.org/download.html

    I've been using it for years and I can't recall ever getting a virus.

    The client has a bit of a mind of it's own at times and can be a tiny bit buggy, but overall it is a fantastic network.

    Not that you'll need it as the installation and setup is a sinch, but here is a small guide - https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/f-fil...-guide-67507/?

    I've give you a few pointers on some of the unwritten rules of Soulseek too:

    First and foremost - always share! Set up your shared folders by going to Options > Shared Folders Configuration. If you don't, most of your downloads will be cut off by users who see you aren't sharing.

    2nd - Try not to queue up more than 2 albums at a time. This isn't a rule, but merely a shared opinion amount many users.

    3rd - Don't share music under 192kbps. Again, not a rule but a common opinion.

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

    Or you could try BT for it, there is alot of private/public sites that have good speeds.

    I have to agree with soulseek. It's muchos better than BT for music.
    Another option I use is imeem. It's great for stealing non-commercial music.

    There are still a few OpenNap servers around too. I seem to be able to find some of the more rare and obscure stuff there. A list of active ervers can be found here: http://gotnap.com/index.php?loc=list

    Soulseek and Bearshare are fairly the best when music comes to download.
