Gammafunction gets the perfect answer along with the bonus credit (this is the bonus credit :P ).
Rohan gets the perfect answer.
nishas thambi is almost perfect in spite of his fading powers due to the missing apostrophe.
jayanth , Dibyo , bobo , shreyas , BiGFooT , A Nony Mouse and Vinay were also more or less correct.

They are all names of Gnutella clients

1.Bearshare (bear)
2.Kiwi alpha (kiwi-fruit)
3.Limewire (lemon)
4.Gnucleus (nucleus)

    Connection is file-sharing or P2P networks like Bearshare, Gnutella, Limewire, Kiwi Alpha, and the other pic is really low res to figure out what it is.

    There is some mention of something called ping/pong packets of data which are used in p2ps

    shouldn’t I be on 15?

  16. nishas thambi

    nice ques! p2p networks- bearshare, kiwi alpha (?), limewire, gnutella.. no clue about #4 (ares galaxy? things being grokked? :-))

    apparently, there’s something called the ping pong protocol that gnutella uses. would that be the second connect?

    registering made me give up an apostrophe!
