   Abstract: P2P computing is being recognised as a very important trend in
   the networking world. Defined as the sharing of computer resources and
   services by direct exchange, P2P computing is enabling a new wave of
   applications with the potential to revolutionise the way computers are
   used. Napster, Scour, Gnutella, SETI at home are examples of successful P2P
   applications. In this seminar, we try to answer the following questions
   with respect to P2P computing: What is P2P? Why P2P? What is it good for?
   What are the various issues in developing a P2P application?
