DC with indirect download?

3 posts in this topic

Don´t know if this is the right place for this topic, but here goes.

I think the time has come to develop a hub / client software that enables

indirect downloading. By that I mean as you connect to a hub, only the hub owner

and the operators can see the filenames of the files shared, but everyone can do a

search and find them that way, but not knowing who is sharing them.

When downloading a file, it is encrypted before transfer, then tunneled to a third

user (with a similar connection speed as the downloader) before ending up at the downloader.

That way no client user knows from where a file came, and where it ended up.

What do you think about the idea?

As I am no programmer I am not able to do it myself. Wish I could though.

Tunneling through third user, no way that is going to happen... since then that third user might not always know what his or her connection is being used for. Besides it would most certainly have negative effect on download speeds as well (because what might work on paper does not necessarily work in practice).

As for the rest, for a derivative like us (ie. not the mainstream client) it's no use thinking about these kind of things. Also as long as DC stands for Direct Connect it would be bit odd way of doing things anyways.
