Peers near me in Windows XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, Is it possible to get the peers near me in Windows XP? I want to use the managed PeerCollaboration.GetPeersNearMe() method to retrive the peers. If it's not supported in XP, is there any workaround to use the same feature in XP?

    Thanks,
    -Adrian

  • Greetings Adrian,

     

    The P2P classes in the System.Net.PeerToPeer.Collaboration namespace are based upon the native Peer-to-Peer Collaboration API, new for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. Since that API did not exist for Windows XP, it unfortunately won't be possible to use the new collaboration features while running on that platform.
