How It Works

The peer-to-peer concept has actually been around for decades. In the early days of corporate networking, it was used extensively in local-area-network products from companies such as Microsoft, Novell, and IBM. Peer-to-Peer computing is now becoming an increasingly important technology within both the consumer and the business community. It basically leverages computers on the network’s “edge” (desktops) instead of centralized servers for performing various content, collaborative, and resource-sharing functions between client, or peer, computers on the network without the need for a centralized server.

The Kazaa Media Desktop is the client software that you download and install on your desktop. Once installed, it lets you connect with other Kazaa Media Desktop users and search for and download files. When searching through music files, the searches show the artist and title plus a number of items related to the quality of the file and the speed of the download. This helps you locate a high-quality audio file, such as 128 kbps, that is on the desktop of a user with a fast connection to the Internet. Once you’ve downloaded a particular file, you can play it on your computer by using your own jukebox software or the software provided by Kazaa.
