DCC File send prompt

Post by aceventura »

What is the prompt to enter before you send someone a file.....so that [sending] it won't show up in 'your' DCC Log?.

Thanks.

What IRC client do you use? And what do you mean by "DCC log"?

Since you are using mIRC, I am assuming you mean DCC as in Direct Client-to-Client, where one can chat and/or send files directly to another.

I also am assuming you are talking about the nicknames and addresses that are stored when you click on the "mIRC DCC Chat" icon in the tool bar of mIRC. The nicks and addresses with whom you initiate DCCs are stored there. You can highlight the nicks and then click the tiny little button in the top right-hand corner to delete them.

However, I don't know of any command that would prevent the names or addresses you DCC with from being stored there. Nor do I know why anyone would care.

I did a little experimentation with dcc chats and file sends since my last post and as far as I can tell, if you use the dcc server method of sending files, where the person you are sending to has the dcc server option enabled to receive files, and you send to their IP (not their nick) ... apparently the IP is not recorded in the dcc "log" as described above.

At least that was my finding.

I still don't know why this might be needed or desired.

But who am I to question. ;-)

Tip: (You can use this method of dcc send when neither one of you is connected to an IRC server! You just need to know the IP you want to send to and both people need to have their mIRC client open, obviously. But being connected to a server is not necessary. A little-known, but true fact.)
