    I use BT and emule but want to try other p2p networks. I've been searching for p2p networks some time and I think gnutella is worth to try. How many users Approximately connect to gnutella2?

    And is FastTrack dead?

    Use Bit Torrent, its the best IMO (for free!!).

    I suggest you experiment with BitTorrent, I believe its the only way to file share, due to:

    *Superior Speeds
    *Superior privacy
    *Superior Selections


    Firstly, you require a Bit Torrent client to be able to use BT protocol to file share, install one of the following:


    All of these will do the same thing, there are slight difference however that set the other apart, which ever one you decide to
    use is OK.

    BitCommet:

    Azureus:

    http://azureus.sourceforge.net/

    uTorrent:

    http://www.utorrent.com/download.php

    ABC [Yet Another Bittorrent Client]

    http://pingpong-abc.sourceforge.net/

    BitTornado

    http://bittornado.com/


    After you have chosen your client, you now ofcourse have to endeavour into BT file-sharing, on the bellow trackers, you will be able to find huge selections of .torrent files you can download. Your BT client will recognise these files, allowing you to run them and create a peer-to-peer link and to download your file(s).

    Some good public BT tracker's:

    http://www.isohunt.com

    http://www.torrentspy.com/

    http://www.mininova.org/

    http://www.torrentbox.com/

    You'll find the best stuff at private trackers, these sites are invite only usually, you need to receive an invite from someone on the inside to gain membership,WARNING You are not allowed to ask for invites at AfterDawn.Com.

    Stick with public trackers for now, the list of them goes on really. Once you've installed your client, just search for what you want in any of those sites and download the .torrent file. TomMelee's BT Bible will weed out any other answers you need, it explains everything you need to know. This is available for download here:

    TomMelee's BT Bible 1.2

    http://www.plucky.org/download-central/p2p-tutorials/

    That should cover everything needed for you to start using BT, there's plenty of other torrent guides and good threads regarding BT and other means of file sharing:

    AfterDawn P2P forums

    http://forums.afterdawn.com/forum_view.cfm/18

    They will provide a great source of information for you to get yourself in the know.

    Check out this guide for ways to make yourself safe whilst using BT:
