NetMess is a peer-to-peer file sharing system. Its advantages over other p2p systems include clone detection and the ability to work through an HTTP proxy and through most firewalls (both inbound and outbound). It is decentralized and does not depend on a master server, so it can run in a LAN environment (useful as an information sharing system for small to middle-sized company). It lets its users search and retrieve documents without having to remember their exact location, and can share all file types (audio, video, archives, etc).
