What is P2P?

Peer-to-Peer networking, better known as P2P, is one of the fastest, reliable and easiest way to share files with large groups of people.

Generally, when you wish to download a file, you normally go to a dedicated server or a network of servers from where you choose your desired file. With Peer-to-Peer in place, any individual who downloads a file(s) becomes an uploader by default. This makes the entire concept of P2P file sharing well-organized and easy for all to access when needed.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Using P2P

Peer-to-Peer network has been in the file sharing community for years now and boasts numerous advantages, but as with any other application architecture, it has certain disadvantages as well.

Advantages of a peer to peer network

  • 1.Network Speed

    Since the file information gets collected from several sources, the P2P file sharing application is able to download that very information from different sources simultaneously. This speeds up the downloading and uploading process.

  • 2.Vast Number of Files Available

    As P2P network involves multiple computers that share the information stored on them, the database of information available is enormous than any other search you make online. A P2P database hosts numerous files that won’t be available if you search for them otherwise which is why they’re popular in nature.

Disadvantages of peer to peer network

  • 1.Slow Browsing Speed

    When you’re downloading files from a P2P network, you will experience noticeable decrease in internet speed on your device. The primary reason is that your internet speeds are dedicated towards downloading the P2P files. If your P2P application is up and running, it will consume bandwidth either when its downloading files, or sharing (seeding) it with other networked users that need access to files you have stored on your device.

  • 2.Security

    With any P2P network, security is the main concern as P2P networks are open, allowing anyone to join, putting greater risk on your devices’ and online security. Malware is the most common form of software that damages your device. When using P2P for downloading files, you must take extreme caution as you’re unsure of the information coming from others’ devices.

How P2P is working and how your IP is shared with everyone

In today’s time, P2P has evolved into in modern P2P networks, it’s actually faster when more users download a file. Instead of taking the whole file from one user, you’re taking smaller pieces from hundreds or thousands of others. Even if they only have a little bandwidth to spare for you, the combined connections mean you get the maximum speed possible. Then you, in turn, contribute to distribute the file again.

Why it is still used? -Public Distribution For Accessing Public data like Internet Archive - Downloading linux Distributions -Exploring Academice Datasets -Share large amounts of corporate data -Pushing software updates.

Have to tell that its very easy to share your IP to other users. as it's very nature of P2P this is how this works. Your ISP also can detect that you are using p2p platforms and either they will banned you or set bandwidth throttling limits.
