P2P (Peer-to-Peer)

Definition: A network structure in which the computers share processing and storage tasks as equivalent members of the network. Different from a client/server network, in which computers are assigned specific roles.

A general term for popular file-sharing systems like gnutella, in which there is no central repository of files. Instead, files can be stored on--and retrieved from--any user's computer.
