MLDonkey is a multi-network file-sharing client. It was the first free and open source client to access eDonkey. It runs as a daemon that can be controlled through telnet (command-line), HTTP (Web pages), and many different GUIs. All these interfaces can be used locally or remotely (after disabling security restrictions). It can currently access eDonkey, Overnet, Fasttrack (KaZaA, Imesh), Gnutella, Gnutella2 (Shareaza), BitTorrent, and Soulseek; support for other networks is only partial. Networks can be enabled/disabled and searches performed in parallel on all enabled networks. Each file is downloaded from only one network but from multiple clients concurrently.
