Peer-to-peer network

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

Alternatively referred to as a P2P network, a peer-to-peer network is a network that does not have a central computer or dedicated server; in other words, all computers are independent. This network is what you would most likely find in home networks or small networks comprised of a dozen or less computers.
