program (ie P2P
) that allows users to download various media
files. You have to conncet to a server
like Razorback to get on a network. It's based of eDonkey2000, but also includes more options, a source exchange, and the KAD (short for Kademelia) network. eMule has several MODs
like NeoMule, eMule Plus, and a leecher MOD, Hardmule. eMule's users are known to provide real files
most of the time, and it's hashing (copy protection) algorithm
is different from Kazaa's where it can't be broken. Speeds are much slower
than any other p2p, there are many more users, and it's community seems to have more in mind than porn and mp3s like large rival Kazaa.
