    Google various projects with those tags. See what you can find that is already made for this, instead of re-inventing the wheel, yourself.

    Also, check sourceforge, and all the programming forums - especially those forums that focus on Linux.

    Lastly, I'd try and program it in a language that was more net aware than C is. Maybe C# or Ruby or Python. Because computational speed is not a limiting factor here, transmission speed is. Every programming language will easily run circles around the transfer speed bottleneck.
