Default Private p2p program

I'm looking for a way to share files with me and a few close friends, but the program has to be for ONLY us, sharing files, no one else from across the internet accessing them.

I've been thinking a VPN, but that will still rely on a centralized compuer, and programs like foldershare aren't true P2P.

anyone know of a good p2p prog for private users?

you probably want to setup an FTP service from each of the computers. you can set password/ username protection. if you also want to host websites than setup an HTTP server. bulletFTP is a good FTP program if you want something powerful and easy to use. you will need to learn how to port forward if behind a router/ firewall. or if you just want to share a few files use instant messaging to file tranfer small files
