LinuxDC++(1) File-sharing client for the Direct Connect network


linuxdcpp [OPTION...] [URI...]


LinuxDC++ is a Direct Connect client based on DC++. Utilizing the latest DC++ core, LinuxDC++ offers similar functionality to the Windows client like segmented downloading, TTH based file integrity, etc. with a GTK+ user interface. LinuxDC++ is free and open source software licensed under the GPL.

Direct Connect (DC) is a peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing protocol. Clients connect to a central hub where they can chat or share files with one another. Users can view other users' list of shared files or search the hub for files.
