|Description:||Open Source Napster Server (0.46-1)|
OpenNap-NG is an Open Source effort to create a version of the proprietary Napster server. Napster is a distributed file sharing service which allows users to transfer files directly between their clients. A centralized server keeps track of all available files and provides clients the ability to search the index of available files. In addition, instant messages (private chat) and group chat services similar to IRC are also provided. Configuration files are derivative of sample.xxx files which are located in the doc directory. One must rewrite those files according to the OpenNap manual -- apparently not with the instructions in the files themselves, which is outdated. Then remove "sample." from the file name and place the files in the /sw/share/opennap directory. Note: for OpenNap to work, at least the config and user files must be completed properly, with the user file containing at least one Elite user. Please see the manual.html included with the uncompiled package for full instructions.
