    The workaround is a good way.
    BeeBEEP uses a "hive protocol".
    This protocol works like this.
    When BeeBEEP connects to another it sends him its user list with IP addresses.
    This makes the first BeeBEEP aware of the other users on the second BeeBEEP's network.
    Doing so requires only one BeeBEEP on the...

    There is also another point that I need to resolve.
    The way I thought of it, BeeBEEP works on a LAN network.
    Even making a mobile version, this would only work on LAN.
    That is the only way to have it in serverless mode.
    To use BeeBEEP on mobile network the server becomes necessary.
