The file searching efficiency and scalable property based on P2P (Peer-To-Peer) can be increased by reduction of message overhead. A single hop cluster based P2P file searching protocol for MANET (Mobile Ad-hoc Networks) focusing mainly over the reduction of message overhead. The searching processes are maintained by intra and inter cluster communication. The concept of message reduction in a single hop cluster formation is maintained based on the transmission range to reduce the number of cluster. By confirming the request and reply messages between the requester and the provider, the same routing path table is maintained for the requested file.
