Firewall to Firewall Transfers
Ares Galaxy is a piece of software that wants to be there for all users, no matter who they are or what the specifications of their computer are. This includes those who are behind tough firewalls which will do its best to block transfers such as the one made by our download. In some cases, you may not be able to alter the firewall – and we’re mainly talking about users in college or in places such as Starbucks where you have very little control over the internet infrastructure. A unique feature about our program is the ability to transfer files through firewalls and this is something we’re going to talk about in more detail today.
To start with, let’s go into a bit more background about how this feature came into action. Back in 2005, it was reported that the developers received a cease & desist notice because of the actions available through the use of the software. For this reason, they decided the best way to go about increasing and improving the software was to make the source code freely available to all that were interested in it. This allowed other developers to look into it and provide advice to the core developers who could help to provide features and functionality.
At the time, network firewalls were starting to become more and more popular. This was because it helped to keep them safe and secure from viruses and other unwanted data but the problem that was caused by them was that it was difficult to partake in file transfers because they were simply blocked by the firewalls. This became a huge problem at the time and most P2P software didn’t have a solution and definitely struggled on this part. However, the developers of our Ares free download managed to find a great way around it and became one of the first pieces of software to do it in this manor.
The feature was first made available in version 1.9.0 which is quite a while ago now but all features are constantly improved and added to which is why file transfers are much quicker and more secure than they were many years ago. Even the connection times are a lot lower now than they were, that’s why we always recommend that you keep it updated after you’ve installed it from our website. Normally, you wouldn’t be able to download any files through firewalls because of the way P2P networks work but the feature we’re about to mention changes all that.
The way our Ares download gets around the firewall issue is by tricking the firewall into thinking it was the one who made the request. By doing this, the firewall allows it without blocking it instantly. If both computers running firewalls think they’re the one who started the connection, both will allow it but neither of them will actually send the data. How does this work then, you may ask? Well there’s even more technology in place to resolve this, a third party comes into the middle of it which will manage the transfer of all packets until they’re allowed through the firewall. This is currently the best way there is of getting past the problem and it does seem to work significantly well compared to other potential options.
Even if you are both behind strong firewalls, there isn’t anything to worry about as you’ll still be able to join the P2P network and you’ll still be able to use our system to download any piece of data you’re looking for. For this reason, you should have already realised by now that you can use this P2P network no matter what your circumstances are or who you are, it really is available to everyone. The download is free and easy to use so there’s no excuse not to use it, we’ll always do our best for our users. If you want to get started and benefit from this firewall to firewall transfer technology you can do so by using the download link we’ve provided to you on our website. We look forward to you joining the millions of other people who choose to use it on a regular basis!
