A P2P network system

Netsukuku is a mesh network or a P2P net system that generates and sustains itself autonomously. It is designed to handle an unlimited number of nodes with minimal CPU and memory resources. Thanks to this feature it can be easily used to build a worldwide distributed, anonymous and anarchical network, separated from the Internet, without the support of any servers, ISPs or authority controls. Keep in mind that it is a _physical network_, it isn't built upon any other existing net, therefore there must be computers linked _physically_ each other, then Netsukuku will build the routes. For more information read the section "2.4 So, WTF is it?" of the document. In order to join to Netsukuku you have to use NetsukukuD, which is the daemon implenting the Npv7 protocol.
