Exploring Android to Android P2P. This is an investigation of getting multiple Android handsets, 4.x series, to successfully talk to each other. Acknowledgements. Lots of the data here is taken from Michael Rogers of the Briar Project. Warning

The following are top voted examples for showing how to use android.net.wifi.p2p.WifiP2pManager.These examples are extracted from open source projects. You can vote up the examples you like and your votes will be used in our system to generate more good examples. Note: If you are experiencing connection drops while using P2P traffic in applications, make sure that you have connected to a P2P server. We allow P2P traffic on certain servers. Please follow these steps to find out which server you should be connecting to: 1. Go to our server recommender feature. 2. Click on Show advanced options: 3. In this chapter, we’ll give peer-to-peer (P2P) networks the attention they deserve. We’ve mastered the exchange of data between Android devices using Wi-Fi. Now it’s time to end our dependence on wireless infrastructure. Popular services such as Skype and BitTorrent are only two examples that use peer-to-peer technology. With these P2P apps for Android you'll be able to download to your smartphone or tablet files shared on peer-to-peer networks like BitTorrent or similar uTorrent 6.5.5 Android version of the P2P client WIFI_P2P_CONNECTION_CHANGED_ACTION: Broadcast when the state of the device's Wi-Fi connection changes. WIFI_P2P_PEERS_CHANGED_ACTION: Broadcast when you call discoverPeers(). You usually want to call requestPeers() to get an updated list of peers if you handle this intent in your application. WIFI_P2P_STATE_CHANGED_ACTION A P2P network can be an ad hoc connection—a couple of computers connected via a Universal Serial Bus to transfer files. A P2P network also can be a permanent infrastructure that links a half Once the cameras are reached, it creates a direct connection between the app and the camera. Just like the popular Bittorent peer to peer file sharing platform. Advantages of P2P technology used in HDX IP Cameras. P2P networks are highly scalable. e.g. Torrent sites have millions of users worldwide.

By applied unique P2P connection technology, users can simply connect and view the live video on any Android/iOS device from the installed IP cameras without complex IP settings. Multiple IP camera videos can be managed to view in one single mobile device.

According to statistics, the setup and connection of a P2P camera takes only about 10 minutes. A bit of theory: the principle behind P2P cameras When a P2P camera is connected to the Internet (via a router or 3G connection), the camera automatically sends a request to a remote server that identifies the camera by its unique ID number.

Once connected open “Plug&Play” app on the Android device and connect to camera by tapping the LAN button. (See below). On the “Cameras” screen the camera should appear. Tap on the thumbnail image to open the connection and view the picture from the camera. Figure 1. Setting up P2P (WiFi direct) connection. Connecting Camera to a LAN

Android version 4.2 (Jellybean) included further refinements to Wi-Fi Direct including persistent permissions enabling two-way transfer of data between multiple devices. The Miracast standard for the wireless connection of devices to displays is based on Wi-Fi direct.
