Getting Started


Download Demonsaw

First thing first! You need to download Demonsaw!

Demonsaw is provided without installers, as a stand-alone application so that it can be run from or stashed anywhere you want. Just download the version you need for your operating system, extract it somewhere, and launch Demonsaw.


Manage Client Settings

Add a Client

Demonsaw allows you to add as many clients as you need so that you can connect to other private groups and routers.

To add a client:

Enable/Disable a client:

Sharing Files

Add files or folders to your shares

Add / Create Groups

Groups in Demonsaw allow you to add additional layers of cryptography to your connection with the Demonsaw router, as well as allowing you to have a private area for friends or trusted associates to communicate on a public router.

To add a group:

Additionally, at the top of the group pane next to the 'group' label, your client will show a Group ID so that you can easily confirm with others that the group settings are matching.

Using Themes

Demonsaw 3 now allows you to select, apply, and reset themes directly from the options pane. You can now save your themes wherever you'd like without having to name it demonsaw.css or put it in the root directory of your demonsaw binary.

Message Router Groups

Another new addition to Demonsaw 3 is the ability to add additional cryptographic layers to the communication between routers with the use of router groups, these groups can also be used in place of router passphrases to prevent access to unauthorized routers and individuals.

Manage Transfer Routers

A new feature added to Demonsaw 3 is way you manage transfer (data) routers. When you connect to a message router it sends you a list of the transfer routers it uses, you can find these under the transfer router tab. This allows you to uncheck transfer routers you don't trust and add transfer routers that only you and your friends know about. Additionally, you can only transfer files with individuals that have a common transfer router enabled.
