P2p Sharing Quiz

Peer-to-Peer sharing (also known as P2P) is a system in which average people have both server and client capabilities. Meaning, they have the ability to add and take files. This kind of P2P is often used for sharing music or software that would otherwise be too expensive. How does it work exactly? Well, first a net user would log onto a site such as Limewire or Napster and sign up to be a part of this sharing. This requires the user to download a program that would allow them to directly access other hard drives, as well as allow others to access theirs. From there, the system finds computers online for the user to access and take files from. 1 See how much you know about peer-to-peer sharing with this quiz!
