how to make freelan clients connect to each other in p2p mode[edit]

if you want to connect to someone via p2p connection, you must add his certificate to you configuration file

For example Alise need to be connected to Bob directly, not through server

both of them have one server in configuration contact
contact=158.88.132.221:12000

Alise configuration file must have this line
dynamic_contact_file=c:\freelan\Bob.crt - path to Bob's certificate

Bob configuration must NOT have this line
accept_contact_requests=no - by default this option is set yes, so you can just comment it

all of them should have relay mode on. It means server, Alise and Bob must have this line
relay_mode_enabled=yes
