PCs have become much more powerful, and they are able to handle the data processing locally rather than on central servers. Because of this, peer-to-peer computing can now occur when individual computers bypass central servers to connect and collaborate directly with each other. In this paper briefly discussed the ability to exploit unused resources (storage, processing) in the host computers, scalability to support large numbers of clients and hosts with load balancing of network links and host computer resources. This paper summarizes the current state of the research effort in the field of peer-to-peer (P2P) networking. Also focused some major trends in the research effort of the peer-to-peer community are explored.
