Peer-to-Peer networking consists of a set of networking APIs that help developers create decentralized networking applications that harness the collective power of networked computers.

Peer-to-peer networking provides a solid networking infrastructure for developing peer-to-peer networking applications.

Peer-to-peer networking is an effective alternative to DNS because peer-to-peer clients participate in, and communicate on, an unplanned mode and the Peer Name Resolution Protocol (PNRP) provides a server-less mechanism for resolving names for peer-to-peer clients.
