Phex is a p2p client with an innovative approach of requesting segments of a file from multiple hosts over which it is available. Once it downloads a segment, it merges it with other segment of the particular file. Doing this essentially offers higher download speed. To ensure that one never runs out of hosts, the app automatically finds new hosts with its search functionality. It also features Download Mesh. The program gives you the option of choosing for every download how the segments are to be chosen, whether according to availability, place in file or previewing. The good thing about this app is the number of configuration options it offers, it is more than any other client. Advanced users can configure the program to their needs and can fine tune every setting to meet their choice.
The powerful search functionality enables it to monitor constantly the traffic going through the network as well as collect those results that passively meet the search term. It also snoops the traffic for any new downloads so that you finish them faster. Such a search function is useful for efficient, long term monitoring of files available on network. Some of its advanced features include compression and ultrapeer technology good for reduced bandwidth, support for browse host, MAGMA support, Bitzi metadata lookup, built in chat, multiple search, etc.
The perfect candidate for a P2P client!
