remy33 Posted December 22, 2015 Report Share Posted December 22, 2015 Hi,Lately I'm studing the torrents protocols, for writing a simple sample client, and I run into two question which I couln't find answer sadly. I'm wonder, before years we had the slowest turtle called 'emule', it was pretty crappy though, But it has a great feature, it has file search via the Kademlia.If I understood currectly, torrent replacement for Kademlia is DHT which actually implement it.So why we can't we share a directory and search in it like oldschool Emule did?Why it's only limited to '.torrent' files only? As well I'm not understand what DHT does in case of Hash collision,I mean it's probably uncommon (2^64) but still, its happens, then what? Even if you don't know the answer, could you please direct me to a place I could read more info about it? Thanks in advance! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
