Is there any software for running Direct connect hub on LAN? Opendchub was available for 11.10 but it's development was halted long ago and there seems to be none on 12.04 repos. I need it to run on my hostel LAN. Any help for compiling the Opendchub source for 12.04 is also welcome.

You can use linuxdcpp.

Direct connect is a peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing protocol. Clients
connect to a central hub where they can view a list of clients or
users connected to them. Users can search for files and download them
from other clients, as well as chat with other users.

The most popular Windows client implementing this protocol currently
is DC++. LinuxDC++ is a Linux port of DC++. Though it is primarily
aimed at Linux, it has been shown to work on other Unix-based
operating systems as well.1

To install linuxdcpp get it from the Ubuntu Software Center, or by clicking below.

Update: To make a new DC Hub, you can use Open DC Hub. The page has all the necessary information, and should probably do fine.
