    I am trying to understnad what does "peer-to-peer" network mean?
    when I see how computers in this network are connected.. to me it
    looks like they are connected to each other?? my first question would
    be, how the data got to send from computer number 1 to computer number
    4 (suppose we have 4 computers), also when I read about OSI I can see
    that it is called "peer-to-peer" communications (PDU) if for example
    application layer can send data to another application layer of other
    computer?? could you please give me an example so I can understand
    this concept?? I mean how applicaton layer can send something directly
    to application layer of another computer??
    thanks a lot
