You can try net2o (see below) either by starting net2o with

n2o cmd

and enter net2o command mode, or by running each command with

n2o <command>

in the second case, you'll be asked again and again for your password when needed.

You can execute the following net2o script commands either by entering

keygen <nick>

This will ask for your password and generate a key. Write down the base85 code it gives for revoking that key; this revocation key is not stored anywhere else. For some tests, you want to create a second key (e.g. to test chat). Give it a different pass phrase; you can create as many IDs as you like; if they have different passphrases, only one of them opens at a time.

Check what keys you have already importet:


This should be your key and the net2o-dhtroot key. Import my key

keysearch kQusJ

At the moment, a 32 bit ID should do it... Your own pubkeys have been exported with the keygen command into a .n2o file. You can import that in your other id(s) with

keyin <nick>.n2o

Try encrypt and decrypt a test file for yourself:

<create a file>
enc <file>
cat <file>.v2o
dec <file>.v2o

You can also create detached signatures (.s2o):

sign <file>
verify <file>

You can try a group chat with several ids, start the group "test" with

chat test

And connect from the other ids with

chat test@<id1>

Or do a 1:1 chat with

chat @<id2>

from and

chat @<id1>

from on several computers/terminals. The chat mode works a bit like IRC, you can use /help to list the commands, /peers to see the direct neighbors, and /me if you aren't actually talking.

You can copy small or large files:


to supply things on , and e.g.

get @<id1> data/2011-05-20_17-01-12.jpg

to copy one of the test images. A fine-grained access right system with default deny will follow, so this section will change.
