LimeWire is a software package which enables individuals to search for and share computer files with anyone on the Internet. LimeWire is compatible with the Gnutella file-sharing protocol and can connect with anyone else running Gnutella-compatible software. At startup, the LimeWire program will connect, via the Internet, to the LimeWire Gateway, a specialized intelligent Gnutella router, to maximize the user's viewable network space.
