Also known as P2P

Peer-to-Peer is a file sharing mechanism that allows files to be swapped directly between users' computers instead of having the file first stored on a server between them.

This means that when you use P2P services, people are actually connecting directly to your computer to retrieve files, and not a server acting as a middle man.
