FearDC is an open source Windows client for Direct Connect network. It is based on DC++ - the original client, but implements more features both for the user and the protocol. Main feature of this fork is the TLS-encrypted connection support for NMDC hubs. It allows you to connect to NMDC TLS-enabled hubs securely, using a TLS-encrypted channel. This feature is crucial because the protocols themselves, either NMDC or ADC, are a plain text protocols that can be easily scanned and even logged by your ISP.

Direct Connect is a network of hubs that allows you to share any type of files over the WAN or LAN, without restrictions or limits, aswell as chatting with online users either publicly or privately. The client is completely free of advertisements and has a smooth, easy to use interface - thanks to original DC++ author Jacek Sieka. Firewall and router support, such as UPnP and NAT-PMP, are integrated, allowing you to set up connection settings automatically in most cases.

FearDC is free software, licensed under the GNU GPL version 3, or at your option any later version. It uses a few third-party libraries, which are also licensed under open-source licenses compatible with GNU GPL3.
