Hi Breno,

we implemented BitTorrent like networks for ns2. Thereby, we realized 
and compared a packet-level and a flow-level approach.

Source code is available at 

The paper K. Eger, T. Hossfeld, A. Binzenhoefer, G. Kunzmann, 
*"Efficient Simulation of Large-Scale P2P Networks: Packet-level vs. 
Flow-level Simulations"*, 2nd Workshop on the Use of P2P, GRID and 
Agents for the Development of Content Networks (UPGRADE-CN'07) 
summarizes our experiences. It is available at the same webpage.
