But we have been wrong before in regards to technology. So can we say that the anonymity problem in P2P networks is solved? No, no we can't. As we've discussed, OpenNet is a tradeoff of anonymity for useability (no need to laboriously find/add

they can also in theory replace all of your peers, and thus know what keys you are downloading/uploading. Isn't the content also encrypted? What good are the keys for to lead back to the originating node? Given that this would take quite a bit of

To move in DarkNet you actually have to go and talk to a person... something like Hi, do you mind introducing me to some of your friends? which may work only sometimes. It seems that we are pushing technology to the point that a breakdown to remain anonymous could be our human condition

Yes, effectively. (Opennet behaves a little differently -- your neighbouring peers are constantly being swapped and optimized to approach a small-world topology.) Does this mean that in Darknet mode the peers are not swapped? The main advantage, I believe, is security -- opennet nodes are

Freenet will route through that node (any request that is not found in the local darknet, and vice versa, outside opennet searches will hopefully penetrate into that dark corner.) If by ignorance or unintentionally a member joins another darknet or

Freenet 0.7.5 build 1276 is now available. Please upgrade, especially if you run a seednode. Terrific, I will upgrade my multiple nodes to this new build. I have a question and I hope I am understanding the concept of seednodes. Does the concept of seednodes apply to Darknets? Specifically,

When you say multiple darknets -- do you mean disconnected from the rest of opennet / separate networks, with only content provided by those nodes? When I say multiple darknets I mean completely separate but under an off-band control. For example, I create a darknet for my tennis friends

You shouldn't run into problems doing a direct copy, assuming you change the four ports mentioned in freenet.ini. You will simply have multiple instances of freenet running, each accessible via it's own http port, each accessing it's own udp data pipes/local sockets. I think. thank you for
