SDSLabs brings to you the first ever DC (Direct Connect) Network of the campus. Now, you can enjoy DC++ like other institutes without any problems. The configuration procedure has been cleared of any hurdles, to bring you a perfect DC experience.
DC is a peer to peer file sharing network. Using it you can share and download the shared files from anyone in the campus, and also search through them and Thus, creating a virtually central hub of shared softwares. You can read more about it at wikipedia.
Two things.Firstly, it is local i.e. it doesn't require net access and works across bhawans. But the better thing is - it is peer to peer sharing. Which means, like torrents, you connect to source directly - not to a common server hosting all the content (which is in case of sharing via FTP). Which also means if more persons are connected, speed is not reduced due to increased load on the server. Since the load is equally divided across peers. More information on Wikipedia
As of now, DC++ is available for Rajiv, Radhakrishnan & Kasturba bhawans.
