Well, the entire point of Freenet is that nobody can know where the data
originated. So if you're asking if there's a way to only get data inserted
by nodes you're friends with - no. That would defeat the purpose of Freenet.
If you're asking if you can only get data that is stored on your friends'
nodes, then yes, setting it to only one hop should work I believe (But then
again, I'm not _too_ familiar with how Freenet works. Especially 0.7.) But
if you're trying to limit access to a small number of peers, can't you just
set it as darknet and only add those peers?
