Fasttrack

A peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing protocol that has been used by a number of P2P programs and applications, including Kazaa, for the exchange of MP3 files. When connected to the application, users do not communicate with each other. Instead, FastTrack user nodes connect to “supernodes” that index the files users have available for sharing and forward the traffic for downloading.
