looking for good p2p2 program


For years, I've been using giFT for p2p and it was a wonderful program. A while ago, something changed: giFT failed to connect to the fasttrack network. Since that time, it has never been able to access that network. Since giFT appears to be unsupported/abandoned/inactive, it would seem that if there is something wrong, it will not be fixed.

Is there a newer (active, supported, you know what I mean) program for linux that will access the networks (protocals, whatever) that giFt used to do?


Thanks in advance.

Google is your friend. Googling I found the wiki on P2P Networks and Applications. On that site I found this:
Quote:
FastTrack File sharing giFT, Grokster, iMesh, Kazaa, KCeasy, Mammoth, MLDonkey, Poisoned
There you go.
