**Prime95**

Prime95 is a program designed to be used to find Mersenne Prime numbers.

An integer greater than one is called a prime number if its only divisors are one and itself. The first prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, etc.

A Mersenne prime is a prime of the form 2

^{P}-1. The first Mersenne primes are 3, 7, 31, 127, etc.

There are two ways to use this program. The automatic way uses a central server, which we call the PrimeNet server, to get work to do and report your results. The second method is the manual method (recommended for computers with no Internet access).
