Proximate is a social peer-to-peer (P2P) application designed for local device to device networking. It provides social communities with several user functions: Messaging, file sharing, and message boards. The application is designed to be completely P2P, i.e. servers are not needed. It only assumes TCP/IP networking, which means that it works over wireless/wired links such as ad hoc WLAN and Ethernet LAN. The application is written in Python for GNU/Linux systems with a GTK+ GUI, Nokia N900 being the primary platform.
Forban is a P2P file sharing application for link-local and local area networks. Forban works independently from the Internet and uses only the local area capabilities to announce, discover, search, or share files. Forban relies on HTTP and is opportunistic, meaning that it replicates any files of interest seen in its proximity. The Forban protocols are minimalistic to ease the production of other implementations.
