The peer to peer application in NetSim has the following properties:


Peer count - Number of 'receivers' of the file

Peer ID - The node IDs of the receivers, separated by a comma

Seeder count - Number of 'senders' of the file

Seeder D - The node IDs of the senders, separated by a comma

File size - Total size of file being sent from 'senders' to 'receivers'

Piece size - The file will be broken up into pieces and pieces can be sent from a randomly selected Seeder - Peer combination

The goal is for the peer to receive all the pieces of a file.
