Max speed limit for DCC Fileserver

Max speed limit for DCC Fileserver - 08/02/03 07:05 AM

What about adding a max limit per user for DCC Fileservers?

For us that we use a fileserver it would be very good idea to have a max speed limit for the files that other users download from us. If a user has a 10 Mbps connection and I have 2 Mbps, you can understand where my bandwidth goes... A lot of FTP clients and file sharing programs have this option, and why not mIRC...? :P

because mIRC isn't a filesharing program. The fileserver was never intended to spread illegal data.

Which part of his post states that he wants to spread illegal data? What does that have to do with the case anyway? This is a Feature Suggestion forum, so spare us the morality.

well, wallpapers and images can be copyrighted too ... however i think that if it is so much a concern that someone spreads copyrighted material with a fileserver, then it should be taken out from mirc, either that, or stop complaining. i understand him, i was running for some time a fileserver too, for a local group of students, because i work at the data-center of the university, and it was sometimes a pain, since some were able to DL at very high speeds, which isn't practical sometimes.

if a fileserver is inbuilt, then it will be used, in whatever form there is
