Overnet is a decentralized peer-to-peer computer network, usually used for sharing large files (e.g., movies and CD images). Overnet implements the Kademlia algorithm. It is the creation of Jed McCaleb, the creator of eDonkey2000. The two clients are merged, although Overnet is still available without the server add-on of eDonkey2000.
