is the internal protocol name for the proprietary peer-to-peer
network developed by Pablo Soto
, first used by Blubster, and later Piolet
. MANOLITO uses UDP
for search routing and is based on Gnutella
. In addition file transfers use a proprietary protocol based on TCP
MANOLITO hosts obtain an entry into the network by contacting an HTTP network gateway, which returns a list of approximately one-hundred MANOLITO hosts. Hosts can also be manually connected to. Servents maintain contact with a fixed number of peers (depending on the Internet connection) that are sent search queries and results.
Manolito is a Spanish-language hypocoristic for Manuel ("Emmanuel"). There is a character named Manolito in Mafalda comics.
