NAME

       git-annex-p2p - configure peer-2-peer links between repositories

SYNOPSIS

       git annex p2p [options]

DESCRIPTION

       This command can be used to link git-annex repositories over peer-2-peer networks.

       Currently, the only P2P network supported by git-annex is Tor hidden services.

OPTIONS

       --pair

              Run this in two repositories to pair them together over the P2P network.

              This will print out a code phrase, like "3-mango-elephant", and will prompt for you
              to enter the code phrase from the other repository.

              Once code phrases have been exchanged, the two repositories will be paired.  A  git
              remote will be created for the other repository, with a name like "peer1".

              This  uses [Magic Wormhole](https://github.com/warner/magic-wormhole) to verify the
              code phrases and securely communicate the P2P addresses of the repositories, so you
              will need it installed on both computers that are being paired.

              This  feature  was  present  in  a broken form in git-annex versions before version
              6.20180705. Make sure that a new enough git-annex is installed  on  both  computers
              that are being paired.

       --gen-addresses
              Generates  addresses  that can be used to access this git-annex repository over the
              available P2P networks. The address or addresses is output to stdout.

              Note that anyone who knows these addresses can access your repository over the  P2P
              networks.

       --link Sets up a git remote that is accessed over a P2P network.

              This will prompt for an address to be entered; you should paste in the address that
              was generated by --gen-addresses in the remote repository.

              Defaults to making the git remote be named  "peer1",  "peer2",  etc.  This  can  be
              overridden with the --name option.

       --name Specify a name to use when setting up a git remote with --link or --pair.
