Peer to Peer

Could anyone tell me what peer to peer activity is.  I have noticed that my usage is currently made up of 1% peer to peer usage and I have never noticed that before.  Thanks.

Re: Peer to Peer

its a file sharing thing see here for more details http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer-to-peer
the PlusNet usage chart is not exact and some items are often misreported, you might not have actually used any

Re: Peer to Peer

Thanks for the link Pierre, I didn't understand a word of it, but that's my fault, i'm not very clued up on technical stuff.  I don't think it is anything to worry about though.

Re: Peer to Peer

As Pierre says, some usage (for protocols we haven't got specifically configured in our ellacoya platform) is sometimes misclassified as p2p usage - but as you say, it's certainly nothing to worry about Smiley
