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


       git annex p2p [options]


       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.



              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]( 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.

              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

              This  can  be run repeatedly, in order to give different addresses out to different

       --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.
