HTTP if more of an access protocol,the logical network is woven in
the web page controled by html, the network needed is formed and take
part in by tcp/ip protocol which usually lies in kernel.

Kademlia itself has the responsibility to weave the p2p network and
bring a node into the p2p network before access can be done.
