Default I2P Latest Release

The latest version of I2P 0.9.4 has been released. There is no information about this in your page "Best Free Anonymous Surfing Services" - not even about the older versions. Could someone give me a little advice about this. I don't understand much of the technical details in their web page.

Regards,

This is why you will not see this featured here.

"I2P is still a work in progress. It should not be relied upon for "guaranteed" anonymity at this time, due to the relatively small size of the network and the lack of extensive academic review. It is not immune to attacks from those with unlimited resources, and may never be, due to the inherent limitations of low-latency mix networks".

I was hoping to use this with a bit-torrent client. Is the anonymity from this not sufficient for that purpose?

Thank you,

In theory I2P is anonymous, but its use in bittorrent has pretty much died from what I saw when I looked in to it about a year ago.

You can not use I2P for ordinary torrents, it must be used with I2P torrents (and ordinary bittorrent clients can not use I2P torrents). There really are no I2P torrents out there.

Vuze has a plugin to make it work on I2P, but I do not think any of the other "regular" bittorrent clients work with I2P. There was a bittorrent client for I2P, I2P-BT, but it is no longer being actively developed.

Basically, I2P never took off in bittorrent.

Hello Sir,

Thank you for this. I have been after this information for sometime but not with any luck until this message from you. You saved me a lot of trouble that I might have got into, by trying to make I2P work with bit-torrent.

I use Vuze at the moment but I am willing to change. it would be very helpful if you could give me some advice about staying reasonably anonymous, when downloading movies using bit-torrent.

Regards,

We should point out that downloading movies and other material that is subject to copyright is illegal. Gizmo's Freeware does not condone such practices, nor do we knowingly advise bit-torrent users how to do it.

This wasn't directed at you specifically because we have no idea what it is you wish to download . We are however often asked about software or advice capable of performing illegal practices which of course we cannot give. In such cases members might be offended if our editors choose not to respond, so this explains why.
