Abstract
Peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing applications are widely used worldwide for their advantages over traditional server models. These benefits include high speed, space efficiency, minimal resource requirements, and enhanced availability. However, in traditional P2P models, when searching for a file, each device on the network must be contacted individually, which can be time-consuming and impractical when many devices are connected. In contrast, hybrid P2P models incorporate a lightweight indexing server, which registers all devices on the network using the P2P application and the files they possess. This indexing server functions like an index page in a textbook, facilitating quick access to the desired file. In this paper, we explore the advantages of hybrid P2P models and propose a novel approach for improving file sharing in P2P networks. Our approach uses a hybrid P2P model with an indexing server to provide faster and more efficient file sharing. We evaluate the performance of our approach using a set of experiments and demonstrate its effectiveness compared to traditional P2P models. Our results show that our approach significantly improves the efficiency and speed of file sharing in P2P networks.
