Since upgrading to mIRC 7, after initiating an fserve session, directory listings ("dir") breaks the stream about halfway through when the home directory contains numerous files/folders.

My home dir has 622 folders and roughly 10,000 files contained in them. Doing a 'dir' will stop it a little under halfway through the listing of the folders.

This error did not occur in the 6.x series of mIRC.

Can you define "breaks the stream" with more details? It closes the dcc chat connection?

Are you testing this as a user or as the server (the one with the directories to list)? And are you testing on the exact same user? Have you tried 6.x after seeing this bug on 7.x to confirm that it still does not occur in 6.x? It could easily be a networking issue, if the connection is dying.

It isn't unusual to have trouble displaying hundreds of folders or files in a single directory. It's not really a smart idea to put that many into one location if you want them displayed in DCC. Common issues are flood protection and buffer size. Try adjusting those and see what happens.

I would be surprised if flood protection activates on dcc connections, as there should be no buffering issues with a direct connection. DCC CHAT should be able to send just as much data, and just as fast as a DCC SEND (they are the same underlying protocol).

Well, it may be something else, but those were the things I thought would be worth checking. I've seen the problem on a lot of versions of mIRC and it's likely related to the script or settings. Anything over 200-300 items very often stops part way through the display. Of course, I haven't looked at large servers like that in years, so I have no idea of the current version has the same problem. I also am not positive if the problem is on the sender's or receiver's end. I just know I've seen it often in the past.
