>What is IPFS?
A fully decentralized, distributed and encrypted file distribution platform.

>why would one use it
* Distributed and decentralized: no single point of failure, censorship-resistant.
* You can have a mutable address (i.e. always points to the latest version of a site), or a static address (points to a specific file). Yes, you can host sites over IPFS.
* Peers are found fast for new downloads. You don't need to wait that much to start a download.
* You can watch your animu while it downloads, I watched few episodes that way and it didn't even buffer.

Presentation of ipfs by its lead designer:
(over ipfs)

>how to upload a single file
$ ipfs add ./$file
Access it at localhost:8080/ipfs/$outputted-hash
>how to upload a dir
$ ipfs add -r ./$dir
Access it at localhost:8080/ipfs/$last-outputted-hash
>how to make the thing mutable
$ ipfs name publish ./$file-or-dir-hash
Access it at localhost:8080/ipns/$output-hash-aka-peerid (it's ipNs not ipFs)
To update, publish another hash and it will be available at the same IPNS address.

>gateways (how to access IPFS if you don't have it installed)

>I2P and Tor support coming soon™. We need that thing anonymous so pls halp.

>Sites with content on them

threadly reminder to pin files that you care about.
Video for big guys:

Can be streamed easily by putting the url in a videoplayer of choice. IPFS is that fast.

We also have the full /g/entoomen library:

And mango:

We got quite a lot of stuff now in the index.
Snes Roms
Someone was archiving mame roms over at notjesus but then they stopped posting before they uploaded anything. Not sure if they uploaded them or not yet.
We also already have the atari collection.

In case you were planning on doing either of these systems.
y r these threads dying pls respond ;_;
Don't know what to say.
Got anything to upload?
I've got like 40 animes and a library of 200+ movies, but not the hard drive space to hold a copy of them.
NES Roms
Do you have any ds roms friend?
No, I do not have any ds roms. I will have some tomorrow though.
Nice. If you are grabbing them from some source, you should try to get Dragon Quest 9: Sentinels of the starry skies. I've been looking for that game.
To the guy from last thread who posted this:

I cant seem to access the DAICON directory, is it still being seeded? Also according to ipfs, the folder is 280 MBs. If you want this added to my tracker, Im gonna need the full show.
If i set up daemons in an intranet network, so long as i don't distribute the hash, it won't be propagated through the network?
All hashes are made public automatically for freedom
I will try, but there is 6400 files. I might not be finished downloading the files by tomorrow, so expect the NDS up by Sunday.
Daicon was a sci-fi convention, not a show. Probably the folder contains the opening animations.

ipfs is fucked
This guy is dumb and doesn't know how he wants to solve the problems he finds.
Dunno, sounds to me like he's describing ipfs to laymen, but he's actually going to build encryption into it from the start.
Is ipfs.io the only way to bring IPFS links to HTTP now?
My daemon must've died or.something. I'll restart it when I get home.

And yes, that's the whole thing, as mentioned. It's Gainax's opening animation of Daicon III and IV.
Yes, that's right. I wouldn't rely on it for anything serious though, since all you need to access it is the hash. Encrypt it first.
No, ipfs.io is just for testing purposes. is the preferred gayeway.
That said, they're implementing a way to target a hash to a specific node by encrypting it with their public key in a future version.
> encrypted

When did they implement encryption?! I thought encryption was handled by the transport mechanism and not by IPFS itself.
If someone else has the file and uploads it, then since it's content addressed, both of you will seed the file. Additionally, if someone requests the hash (even if they don't have the file), then they can receive it from you even if you didn't give them the hash yourself.
It encrypts traffic, but it doesn't do encryption in the sense of onion routing to provide anonymity. That's left to the transport.

Compare it to plain HTTPS vs HTTPS + Tor.
Onion routing isn't encryption, tor and i2p encrypt traffic and then rout it. The encryption is not part of the routing protocol and the routing protocol does not rely on encryption - they're 2 completely different things. The routing protocol provides anonymity, the encryption provides encryption. Together they prevent any information leak. Encryption alone only prevents MITM and on-the-fly reads. Routing alone only prevents learning the origin and end of traffic without doing a MITM or on-the-fly read.
IPFS was always encrypted. You can look at the code if you want.
This is such a meme - freenet without the features
If you don't know the slightest thing about ipfs or freenet, you're free to not make a fool out of yourself trying to relate them.
Explain how I'm wrong then rather than insulting me
Encryption is a fundamental requirement for onion routing. Without it, all nodes along the path you're sending your traffic will know the entire remaining list of nodes in the path, meaning they will always know the destination node and have a fair chance of figuring out the source.

>doesn't even use delay tolerant networking for dealing with speed-of-light latencies measured in minutes between planets
baka desu sempai
When you fetch content, you query nearest nodes first and on, such that large-distance relays work just fine. It is a sane approach to delay tolerance that scales better than looking for a file forever when you don't know if the file even exists.
That's like saying that i2p offers decentralized content hosting because routing is decentralized - willful misinterpretation of facts to fit an agenda.
I sure hope it doesn't rely on TCP then. A single three-way TCP handshake could take over an hour between Earth and Mars.
Huh? I was responding to someone who thinks encryption == anonymity. It doesn't matter if you think layering encryption in Tor or i2p is pointless or not. The point is that IPFS does no such thing.

It can be extended to fit any future transport protocol, IIRC.
The good news is the protocols already exist.


Setting up a virtualized network with something like 15-minute latency between hosts would be a good way to do it, but I'm not sure how you'd set that up in any common virtualization platform.
>Setting up a virtualized network with something like 15-minute latency between hosts would be a good way to do it, but I'm not sure how you'd set that up in any common virtualization platform.

I'm pretty sure pf can simulate packet loss and delay, I see no reason why it couldn't delay 15 minutes and limit bandwidth too
I'm pretty new to this program, so can anyone tell me how to download a file from a hashed directory?
commandline was very easy, think it was ipfs get hash
$ ipfs get <hash>/<filename>

$ ipfs resolve <hash>/<filename>
$ ipfs get <filehash>

if you want to do it all by hashes for some reason.

Substitute get for pin, cat etc. as you see fit.
You can just browse through the directory in your browser, or you can use ipfs get <directory-hash> or ipfs get <directory-hash>/<filename>. You can also see a directory's content (filenames and hashes) by ipfs ls <directory-hash>.
Thanks, it works now. Seems like you ipfs guys are actually decent instead of shitposting or shilling whichever company
ipfs reminds me of tahoe-lafs in a few ways.
I understand they don't serve the same purpose.
Tahoe has the shared datastore and duplication, which ipfs sort of has with the caching, its just not a set amount of distribution.
Tahoe normally doesn't have public gateways, so it's a plus that all ipfs gateways are essentially equal.

Apparently my shitty ADSL2 router shits itself whenever I try to download anything via ipfs. Any tips?
What's your setup? WEP? WPA2? What frequency? Number of users on the network? Wired?
Well, I have a ADSL2 router with integrated WiFi (WPA2-PSK). Only my PC is using the network right now.

My PC is connected by wire to another router, which acts as a WiFi receiver - I use that so that my TV can also connect to the network.
Also, forgot to add, it's on channel 6, 2.4 GHz.
I guess you could try to lower the amount of concurrent connection in the config.
I've searched about it, how do I do that?
ipfs config --help
Er... That wasn't really helpful. Apparently there is no config for that maximum amount of concurrent connections. Or I'm just being retarded.
