- The File Server -
Now we get a bit more technical. The Omega Script
File Server, is an advanced server console that allows users
to enter your pc as though it was a FTP. They are allowed only
to enter the folder(s) and sudirectories in which you select.
(There is no way for them to sneak around that, so dont worry
^_^). The options to set up your file server are int he main
menu under Main Settings, and "File Server".
Here is a break down of most of the settings:
Max Users: Max # of users that can get in at once
(the higher the number, the more resources it will take up when
they all start joining so its smart to keep it around 6-8 or
Max Gets: Max # of files that can be sent at one
Max Gets Each: Max # of gets one person may have.
Before their requests start entering the queue list.
Max Queues: Max # of queues your queue list will
have.(the queue list is like a waiting list). Its good to keep
a decently high number, somthing like 20+ if you have a fast
connection and stay on 24/7.
Max Queues Each: Max # of queues one person may
have. Usually 2-3 to save room for other people to get into
the waiting list.
File Server Chat: Allows the users (that have
logged in) to communicate with each other within the file server
as though it was a seperate channel.
Slot Announce: Not well taken by alot of channels,
but can be usfull if it is. This option, if selected, messages
the channel each time a new spot has opened on the queue list
so that users have the chance to battle over it.
Enable On Start: Exactly what it says! If checked,
the file server will automatically be activated each time you
start the script.
Channels to Advertise Box: Just an area that you
may select the channels in whch the ad will be displayed.
Delay Time: Time in between ad displays. Usually
kept around 30 min (the ad will display every 30 min).
Note: Just an area to give a small discription
of the file server, or what your serving, or to just leave a
stupid comment. It will be displayed at the end of the file
sever ad that is shown in the channel.
Enable Multi Drive: Enables the multi drive function.
If selected, you only have to turn the main trigger on, an just
fill out of the other info o the other drives, but just dont
enable their triggers unless you want their seperate triggers
to be displayed in the file server ad. When you select this
feature a window will pop up where you may select which drives
are enabled in multi drive. The user will be notified of this
while in the file server, an when used may access the other
drives from within the file server without haveing to type out
DCC Send Boost: Just a area in which will display
if that option is on or off. The option to disable send boost
or enable it is in the General Setup window.
Enable Trigger: Enables the trigger to be displayed
in the file server ad. If not enabled, but dir info is filled
out for it and you select it form the multi drive pop up window
(pops up when you enable the function), they can access it from
within the file server.
Trigger: Whatever you want the trigger (command)
to be in which the users need to type into the channel to get
into your file server.
Root Directory: The dir in which you want to serve
from for that trigger/drive. It will allow the users into the
dir selected and the subdirectories within that dir. It WILL
NOT allow the users to back out of that dir and start surfing
Welcome File:This is the message displayed when
the user first enters the file server. It could be a simple
"welcome to my file server" or a disclaimer, or a
set of rules. Just type it out into a text file (.txt) and select
that file form the setup window to be the one to be used)
Stats: Simply a stats display window showing how
many users have accessed, bytes sent, files sent, files failed,
and so on.
And thats the file server in a nutshell ^_^
Additional options like min cps are available
in the general misc window.
To ACTIVATE the file server after everything
has been setup, right click in the channel and go to "Advertisments"
and "File Server" and select start. Thats one thing
most newbies miss, and tend ot bug people for help, lol, so
i figured id mention that!
