Just a note to some people looking for the outlining application called Neo -- this is not it. Check the AppStore for Neo.

You might find "Poisoned" more appropriate - it's a multi ptp network client - at least that's my take on it.

Using port scanning CAN get you into all sorts of trouble and is seem by many as a low-threat "hacker" attack.

I've used this program for a while now and have found it incredibly useful for media downloads, is very easy to use, very simple, and very streamlined. A few new features wouldn't hurt, but I think that overall, this is the best P2P for mac right now.

TO ANYONE HAVING PROBLEMS GETTING IT TO WORK: If you cannot find anything in a search, go to the smaller of the two windows, click the second button, then hit "Master List" and wait for the host search to finish. You may need to do this multiple times to get the fair majority of hosts. You may change the maximum number of hosts it will scan each time in the Preferences menu. Good luck.

This program is awesome. It's got a nice, simple interface, is as straightforward and simple as possible, quite reliable and much better than LimeWire. If not for only 400 or so servers (much less than compared to other Gnutella clients), this would be better than KaZaA itself. One suggestion would be to get more IP ranges -- cover entire ISPs such as AOL, EarthLink, Juno and many others.

Neo is basically a portscanner, so you want to be careful with it. I stopped it pretty quickly as I realized that I was pinging thousands of IP addresses. I work for a college as a computer technician and I live on campus, so running this could have cost me my job. There's got to be a better way for us mac users to have kazaa. If you're going to run it, be careful, and make sure it isn't against any acceptable use policies or contracts that you've signed.

Finally, something better than Limewire that works!! Yes!!!!!! Now the only thing that would be better is an official Kazaa release for Mac OSX and 9.

I'm amazed that this actually works. It's dawn awkward to use, but I have downloaded plenty of stuff with it. I hope I don't get into trouble with my broadband ISP for running a port scanner.

Please let this turn into an official Kazaa client... no wait, that would load it up with spyware and cause it to suck. Anyone porting Kazaa Lite?

Very slow scanning but after hours you can find more than Limewire. i prefer DirectConnect for mp3. http://www.neo-modus.com/

Dear Michael Thole: Thanks for doing the Macintosh (X) community a favour by creating this app. There are many of us who appreciate the effort and level of progress to date, considering there is no other way to connect to the Kazaa network on a Mac. Thanks again for an app and their refinements that have yielded great results (dozens of files I was looking for for a long time using other methods - LimeWire, etc.) within a few minutes of starting it up. You are a real hoser (a Canadian term for a mensch ). CanadianKid
