Majestic-12 : DSearch : Download!

Notice: As of 5 July 2014 Project continued for existing members only

From today we are stopping accepting NEW project members, however the project continues for those who have already joined it! Software downloaded from this page will only work for already registered users, no new members will be accepted, sorry!

This software will use your connection to crawl for data and send it back to main server where it will be indexed and made available for actual searches. You will need to have unmetered broadband connection (you can limit the amount of bandwidth to be used), reasonably fast CPU (Pentium-II 400 Mhz+ or better) and 256Mb of RAM. Actual usage of memory depends on your settings, with default ones resulting in 50-60Mb usage at any time.

WARNING: this application will use lots of bandwidth (though you can configure how much and stop using it at anytime), do NOT use it unless you have an unlimited broadband connection!

A detailed manual on how to install and optimise MJ12node is now available here.

Other OSes?

In theory MJ12node is now portable to any platform supported by Mono, but this will only happen if you care to provide help in testing node on your platform. Please enquire in forum.


MJ12agent is a standalone light-weight utility that allows to control MJ12node run on a separate computer. The utility is designed to run on your desktop computer(s) to detect if you actually work on it. It enables remote node to activate correct profile to use as much of your network bandwidth as you wish it to. This tool is designed for the Windows platform, however it can be used to control nodes run on all supported platforms. MJ12agent works with MJ12node's v1.0.5 or higher.

MJ12agent v1.0.1 - installer.

If you have any problems installing or running software then please report them in forum.
