iMule is based on the aMule source code and uses the Kademlia algorithm and the I2P network. The eDonkey network used in eMule and aMule, which connects through servers, has been dropped. iMule downloads and shares files without revealing the IP addresses and identity of its users.
Like aMule, iMule aims to be portable over multiple platforms with the use of the wxWidgets library. Supported systems include Linux, Mac OS X, various BSD-derived operating systems, Windows and Solaris.
Due to BitTorrent popularity and lack of censorship, the necessity to install the software I2P in order to configure the I2P router with proxy 127.0.0.1 port 4444 before going download iMule from the eepsite http://echelon.i2p and download the file nodes.dat, the software failed to gain popularity.
