The multiparty transport protocol.
This is Libswift (aka BitTorrent at the transport layer). Differently from TCP, the protocol does not use the ordered data stream abstraction. Effectively, it splits a file into 1KB packets and sends them around. The secret sauce is Merkle hash trees and binmaps.
Requires libevent-2.0.17 or higher.
swift.cpp is the main exec file; it may be run as e.g.
$ ./swift -t node300.das2.ewi.tudelft.nl:20000 -h \ d1502706c46779d361a1d562a10da0a45c4c40e5 -f \ trailer.ogg
...to retrieve video and save it to a file.
Alternatively, you might play with the HTTP gateway, the preliminary version. First, run the seeder-tracker:
$ ./swift -f ~/Downloads/big_buck_bunny_480p_stereo.ogg -l 0.0.0.0:20000 Root hash: 7c462ad1d980ba44ab4b819e29004eb0bf6e6d5f
...then you may try running the swift-HTTP gateway...
$ ./swift -t 127.0.0.1:20000 -g 0.0.0.0:8080 -w
...and finally you may point your browser at the gateway...
If you use an HTML5 browser (Chrome preferred), you are likely to see the bunny trailer at this point...
