Clip2

Clip2 Distributed Search Solutions (Clip2 DSS) develops and provides technical data and research for the Gnutella developer and end user communities. The company also recently released the Clip2 Reflector, a proxy server with indexing capabilities designed to operate as a "super peer" that works in conjunction with one or more Gnutella servents to enable a "brokered peer-to-peer" networking model. Although the actual file transfer is still handled directly between peers, the rationale is that using a network management application to broker the search requests improves network performance overall. The Java-based application requires a Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE), Standard Edition, Version 1.3.0 (or equivalent) and is compatible with all software implementing version 0.4 of the Gnutella protocol.
