Peer-to-peer networks are immensely popular, but bootstrapping them usually requires centralized infrastructure. In fully decentralized environments such as mobile ad hoc networks, the use of centralized solutions are not possible. This paper presents a method of bootstrapping P2P overlay networks running on MANETs, and demonstrates a Java implementation of the algorithm. Simulation results show that the algorithm performs well and the implementation confirms the feasibility of the algorithm.
