MLDonkey is a multi-platform multi-network peer-to-peer client.
It was formerly a Linux client for the eDonkey network. Now, it is also able to connect to multiple networks (gnutella, Direct-Connect, Soulseek, etc). Networks can be enabled/disabled, searches are performed in parallel on all enabled networks.
MLdonkey runs as a daemon on the computer, in the background, downloading and sharing files, 24 hours a day. It can be controlled using several interfaces: the simplest one is telnet (telnet 127.0.0.1 4000), a more interesting one is a WEB server (http://127.0.0.1:4080/), and a binary protocol allows access using more elaborate Graphical Interfaces (see the GUIs available on your system at the bottom of the page).
MLdonkey comes by default with a GTK interface. All these interfaces can be used locally, or remotely (after disabling security restrictions).
For all POSIX (Linux/BSD/UNIX-like OSes), Solaris, BeOS, MorphOS.
* 100% Open Source, GPL license
