"ncp" is a utility for copying files in a LAN.




"ncp" is a utility for copying files in a LAN. It has absolutely no security or integrity checking, no throttling, no features, except one: you don't have to type the coordinates of your peer.

npush will now use IPv6 and IPv4 multicast on the multicast groups ff02::6e63:7030 (6e63:7030 == 'ncp0') and (110.99.112 == 'ncp'). If both methods fail, npush will resort to the broadcast packets used by previous versions. You can force the broadcast method by passing "-b" to npush so that previous npoll versions can see the announcements.

NCP Basically it works like this:

1. You and your buddy want to play Quake
2. Your buddy has a level that you don't have
3. He types npush filename and waits. npush sends out UDP announcement packets proclaiming that someone wants to send something
4. You type npoll. npoll waits until it sees one of these packets
5. The files are copied with tar over a TCP socket, so permissions and file dates (and if you are root, owners) are preserved.
