Objective/ProposalApple iTunes uses a service named Bonjour (formerly known as Rendez-Vous) to allow users on a local subnetwork to share their music. The purpose of this project is to allow users to share their music over greater distances, across networks, effectively creating an overlay network for iTunes. The project will not allow users to illegally download music, and is strictly a proof of concept.
Implementation:The implementation will be a P2P architecture with a central login/bootstrap server. It will consist of:
server: central login server client: the iTunes proxy server. A central buddy list will be available to everyone connected to the server, and the clients will use the server to establish direct connections between each other.
