Peer to Peer Series Part 1: Intro to PNRP

Sign in to queue


This kick-off screencast introduces you to the foundation of Peer-to-Peer applications, PNRP.  Peer Name Resolution Protocol is the the underlying mechanism used by applications to discover peers on a network.  This can either be a local subnet or the Internet at large.  One of the great things about PRNP is that is even works across NAT devices.

In this screencast, I introduce you some fundamental PNRP concepts and show how you can use the command line to test out the basics.  This screencast is not intended to be a deep dive technical exploration.  Rather, it lays a sufficient foundation for you to understand what is going on in future screencasts and lets you get started building P2P applications as soon as possible.
