I know that somewhere along in my page, I have
explained fserve couple of times, but every day I get
emails asking me how to set an fserve :).
So here we go again :)
With mIRC you can have your own file server. That
means that people can access a pre defined directory, and
download whatever they want.
So the first thing to do is make a new directory. The
user will be limited to accessing only files and
directories within this directory.
Then put whatever you want under this directory, pics,
wav, text, programs etc. If you are using mIRC 5.1, there
are two ways to set your mIRCs file server.
Go to Remote/Events , make sure that On
listening is checked and copy the following:-
1:TEXT:!yournick*:*:/fserve $nick 3 c:\fserve-path
Note that a user must type whatever you
use for !yournick to start fserve.
Note :- the number 3, after $nick denotes the
maximum number of simultaneous dcc gets that the user can
have during a file server session.
Note replace c:\fserve-path with the full path
of your fserve directory.
Note The help.txt, or any text file is Optional
. If you are going to use a help.txt file don't
forget to specify the path.
This is available only to mIRC version 5.1 and over.
Click the DCC Options button
Then click the Fserve Tab.
Max. Fileservers:- Specify
here how many users can be served
Max. DCC gets per user:-
This limits the number of simultaneous
DCC Gets a user can request.
This specifies the root directory
that a user will see when they first enter a file
server initiated via the DCC Server. The user
will be able to access all files and directories
within this root directory.
Welcome text file:-
This specifies the welcome text
file that will be sent to a user when they first
connect to a file server.
Display file server
warning:- You will be warned that someone is doing an fserve on your server
NOTE:- A user must type /DCC fserve your IP to start an fserve. To find your
IP an user can do /dns your nick.
Remember that this method can be used even if you
or your friend are not on IRC, as long as your
connected to the internet, and know the IP
number, you can DCC send\get files.
