Open Source and Cross-Platform Ed2k Client that Makes It Very Easy and Quick to Search for And Download Lots of Multimedia Files to Your Computer’s Hard Drive
Although most users prefer BitTorrent technology when it comes to sharing and transferring files, songs, movie clips, and pictures, there is still a group of users who would rather use the old-fashioned peer-to-peer file-sharing networks.
This is where aMule (short for all-platform Mule) comes in to help you connect to eD2k and Kademlia networks using your Mac.
Moreover, aMule is a comprehensive peer-to-peer file-sharing client that can be used on all popular operating systems, such as OS X, Linux, and Windows, as well as over 60 more platforms.
eMule-like user interface with a focus on being as similar as possible to most other peer-to-peer clients
aMule‘s interface is similar to the popular eMule client application and, as a result, using it is quite straightforward, especially if you used other P2P clients before.
From the top toolbar you will be able to open the Search tab and conduct searches, view and monitor your downloads by accessing the Downloads tab and chat with various users from within the Messages tab.
When running aMule for the first time, the app will automatically download a list of servers to which you can easily connect. You also have to option to manually add eD2k servers and Kademlia nodes.
Connection statistics and remote control via a built-in remote GUI
One of the most important tools provided by aMule is, as expected, the Search function. The Search tab gives you the possibility to perform multiple searches at the same time and filter the results according to your needs. You can also specify the type of file you are looking for in the Extended Parameters panel.
Moreover, aMule provides detailed connection statistics and enables you to quickly customize the app from the Preferences menu. Here you will find another useful feature that will help you to remotely control the application.
Lightweight and full-featured P2P client for the eD2k and Kademlia networks
aMule is also light on CPU and RAM usage. During our testing period, the CPU usage spiked up to 10% on an iMac with a dual-core Intel processor, while the RAM load was between 50 and 70 MB.
In conclusion, the aMule app is a fast and easy-to-use P2P client that will provide you with all the tools you need to download and upload various types of documents and files over the eD2k and Kademlia peer-to-peer networks.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used aMule for Mac and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
