I'm developing a peer-to-peer dataspace application.

For that I want to create a peer-to-peer environment locally (on a single machine, a laptop). Is there a any method or tool to do that?

    Use lots of virtual hosts that interact with each other. – Joe Z. Mar 8 '13 at 16:11

Just connect it to a network, then it's on the same network as itself!

No joke, its that easy.. It can access itself variety of ways (over the network) (As long as you can run 2 instances of your app on the same Computer)

  • By internal IP (and port)
  • By Computer Name (and port)
  • By IP: (and port)
  • By external IP (and port) (if you router is configured to forward forward incoming traffic to your computer )
  • Use a Service like Noip.com (Also Requires Router configuration)
