giFToxic provides a GTK 2-based client for giFT.
At the moment it is under heavy development.
giFT stands for giFT: Internet File Transfer. It is a daemon that is intended to act as a bridge to combine the capability of using several (peer-to-peer or otherwise) file sharing protocols for a simple GUI client.
It uses the plugin paradigm to dynamically load different protocols for a client as and when required. The currently supported networks include:
OpenFT, giFT's own file sharing network
Gnutella1 (used by BearShare, LimeWire, ...)
FastTrack (used by Kazaa)
A lightweight protocol is used by clients to communicate with the giFT process, allowing the protocol code to be completely abstracted from the user interface.
Search nodes handle search requests. They search the filelists their CHILD (common) nodes submitted to them. These nodes must have a capable Internet connection and at least 128M RAM. A modern processor is highly recommended as well.
INDEX nodes keep lists of available search nodes, collect statistics, and try to maintain the structure of the network.
