I2P Anonymous Network

I2PTunnel application, you can hook up application instances and have them talk to each other over standard TCP sockets. In plain client-server scenarios, this is an effective technique for many simple protocols, but for distributed systems where each peer may contact a number of other peers (instead of just a single server), or for systems that expose TCP or IP information within the communication protocols themselves, there are problems.


Java 1.4 or higher. or equivalent JRE. (Sun Java 1.6 recommended)
Determine your installed Java version here or type java -version at your command prompt.
Clean installs

* Graphical installer:
i2pinstall-0.7.6.exe (SHA256 6d5d3b9feee1f827e25c896bdc12553a5133816e0bf705a5d9dffe099685245a sig)
Download that file and run it. If you're not on windows, you can type java -jar i2pinstall-0.7.6.exe (yes, really)
* Command line (headless) install:
Download the graphical installer file above and run java -jar i2pinstall-0.7.6.exe -console from the command line. This will work on windows. linux, and mac (yes really).
* Source install:
i2psource-0.7.6.tar.bz2 (SHA256 05c16c78670ebcadb401509a0b46010e8d3ef2644bce3bc62f96751368e24402 sig)
Alternately, you can fetch the source from monotone.
Run (tar xjvf i2psource-0.7.6.tar.bz2 ; cd i2p-0.7.6 ; ant pkg) then either run the GUI installer or headless install as above
