DC++ is an open source P2P file sharing client for Windows. It's capable of connecting Direct Connect and Advanced Direct Connect networks and allows it's users to share files over the internet without restrictions or limits.
The Direct Connect network is a decentralized network, made up of individual servers (hubs) that users join to share files with other members on that hub. Each hub is individually run by a fellow user of the Direct Connect network, and may have certain themes to the content on the hub. Hub owners set up rules to regulate their hub as they see fit.
