Dilawar Singh Being Dilawar/ Tools/

Most likely all of the links mentioned on hub-list page are now dead. If there are lot of enlightened (and pervert) users over LAN then there would definitely be some Direct Connection (DC) hubs. And IIT Bombay is no exception. DC-hubs are maintained by undergraduate students. They download and share most of the data. I am greatly thankful to them for sharing latest animated movies etc. They have the enthusiasm and energy of young. There is no fixed IP scheme for these hubs. When a new hub is created, it is usually assigned a new ip-address according to the whims of its creator. Therefore, there are no standard addressing scheme for hubs besides 10...*. The digit which follows the 10 is usually hostel number, but I wouldn’t count on it. This link claims to maintain currently active hubs. I have also started keeping ips of hub-list. See this page for hub-list. To browse these hubs, one uses  open-dc clients. For windows, there are many such applications as opendc, dcplusplus etc (ask your neighbor.). For Linux users, at least following applications are available.
