Peer-to-Peer (P2P) File Sharing

Peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing is sharing files directly with other computer users instead of having to access a central database for the information.

Do not use peer-to-peer file sharing utilities (for example: Kazaa, iMesh and Morpheus) to unlawfully download or share copyrighted material for which you do not hold the copyright. This use of file-sharing programs can open you and others to severe legal penalties.

Peer-to-peer file sharing can saturate technology resources with voluminous traffic to the exclusion of another's use. The University network is shared broadly and has a limited capacity.

One documented side effect of having file sharing software running on a computer is the potential inability to read e-mail with the Webmail program.
