I am looking at bypassing the web server and using the API for C to let (possibly) hundreds or thousands of distributed clients exchange info P2P using a tamino server (or a few) or store data onto it. XML is perfect for the kind of evolution I need to do.
Is there a specific port that is used? what kind of encryption capabilities are possible? What limitations exist in terms of the simultaneous number of clients?
Is there a link to the docs and something I can use to evaluate the whole technology?
