Well, basically I am looking for all the information I can find on the implementation of P2P with Delphi 7.  I am looking for tutorials, source code, good web sites, components (free or otherwise), tips, advice, books, etc.  

I am mostly interested in Decentralized Super Peer and Equal Peer networks as well as Distribulted, Brokered and Routed Networks.  I would also like information on P2P "protocols" like Napster, Gnutella, etc.


I will close the question when I feel I have gotten enough information for my project and I will then split the points to all who have contributed with the majority of points going to those who have contributed the most.  I have around 6000 points and am going to be very generous.

Thanks!

Well, I guess a good place to start would be to visit the info which is already archived here:

Then a good search of google would produce these results:

I would suggest playing around with the TServerSocket & TClientSocket classes,
Or The Indy components.

There are some examples available in the Indy demo folder, and on their web site:

There are also numerous articles on the internet related to both of these solutions:

Hope this helps!
