    3535<li class="tidylist"><b>Anonymous File Transfer</b><br><a href="/i2psnark" target="_blank">I2PSnark</a> is integrated into I2P, providing anonymous, encrypted <a href="https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/BitTorrent_%28protocol%29" target="_blank">BitTorrent</a> transfers. In addition, Sponge develops a bittorrent client called <a href="http://bob.i2p/Robert.html">Robert</a> written in Python. There is also a port of <a href="http://www.emule-project.net/" target="_blank">eMule</a> to I2P called <a href="http://echelon.i2p/imule">iMule</a> [Needs developers!], an anonymous, secure implementation of a <a href="https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Gnutella" target="_blank">Gnutella network</a>, accessible using <a href="http://echelon.i2p/i2phex/" target="_blank">I2Phex</a> [maintained by Complication, seeking new developers!], and additional facilities including browser-based file hosting etc.</li>
    3636      <li class="tidylist"><b>Anonymous Chat</b><br>Start your IRC client (e.g. Chatzilla, Pidgin, XChat)
    37         and connect to the <a href="irc://127.0.0.1:6668/i2p">server</a> at <code>127.0.0.1 port 6668</code>. You do not need to configure a proxy in your IRC client; I2P provides you with a local IRC tunnel (configured in your IRC client as an IRC server or remote host). Your local I2P IRC tunnel on <code>localhost:6668</code> will direct you to one of two IRC servers hosted on I2P by Postman and Badger, but neither you nor they know where the other is, and your mom, ISP or government is unable to intercept your conversation! Once you're there, <code>#i2p-help, </code><code>#i2p</code><code></code>, <code>#i2p-chat</code> and <code>#i2p-dev</code> are just a few of the available channels you may wish to /join. There's also an I2P-based <a href="http://echelon.i2p/qti2pmessenger">instant messenger</a> for unmonitorable and uncensorable anonymous chat, as well as Jabber servers, website-based chat etc.</li>

    3838      <li class="tidylist"><b>Forums &amp; Blogging</b><br><a href="http://syndie.i2p2.de/" target="_blank">Syndie</a> is a distributed forum and blogging platform for I2P [Needs developers!]. There's also an I2P plugin port of the Java-based <a href="http://pebble.sourceforge.net/" target="_blank">pebble</a> blogging platform ported to I2P by zzz, available on <a href="http://i2plugins.i2p" target="_blank">i2plugins.i2p</a>. And, of course, all normal blogging, forum and cms software will run over I2P, though you're advised to take extra precautions with security when setting up and to keep all associated software (e.g. Php, MySql, Python, Apache) up to date and locked-down! Also, there are quite a few forums running on I2P in various languages; see <a href="#eepsites">below</a> for some suggestions.</li>
    3939      <a name="plugins"></a><li class="tidylist"><b>Plugins for I2P</b><br>Extend the usefulness of I2P by installing plugins& blogging, chatting, file sharing and other plugins have already been written or ported and await your <a href="http://i2plugins.i2p/plugins/" target="_blank">installation</a>! Browse the plugins and related info at <a href="http://i2plugins.i2p" target="_blank">i2plugins.i2p</a>. If you're a <a href="http://i2plugins.i2p/developers/" target="_blank">developer</a>, a complete language-agnostic framework for writing your own plugins is provided with <a href="http://www.i2p2.i2p/plugins.html" target="_blank">documentation</a>; I2P plugins can be coded in any language.</li>
     
    9292  make sure your browser's proxy is set to access http traffic (<i>not</i> https, <i>not</i> socks) via <code>127.0.0.1 port 4444</code>. If you need some help, there's <a href="http://www.i2p2.i2p/htproxyports.html" target="_blank">a guide</a> to configuring your browser for I2P use, also <a href="http://www.i2p2.de/htproxyports.html" target="_blank">available</a> on the normal web. </li>

    9595  <li class="tidylist"><b>Verify Java is Up to Date</b><br>Ensure your Java is up to date [version 1.6 recommended and required for some features]. If you don't have Java installed, you probably want some implementation of the JRE (<a href="https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/JRE" target="_blank">Java Runtime Engine</a>); if you're a developer, the <a href="https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Java_SDK" target="_blank">SDK</a> may also be of interest, and possibly <a href="http://ant.apache.org/" target="_blank">Apache Ant</a> which we use to build the I2P Java binaries.

    112 <li class="tidylist"><b>Get Involved!</b><br>I2P is developed and maintained mostly through unfunded, voluntary participation by community members. We're happy to accept <a href="http://www.i2p2.i2p/donate.html" target="_blank">donations</a>, which go into essential hosting and administrative costs. We have <a href="http://www.i2p2.i2p/bounties.html" target="_blank">cash bounties</a> for aspects of I2P for developers looking for incentives to participate, and we're always looking for more Java coders, translators, promoters and users to help I2P grow. The bigger the I2P network, the more everyone benefits, so simply telling all your friends about I2P (and lending a hand with the installation and setup where needed) is a big help. For further info on how you can help visit the <a href="http://www.i2p2.i2p/getinvolved.html" target="_blank">volunteers page</a> on the website.</li>
