Transfer Module

The transfer module provides DCC SEND/GET support and userfile transfer support for userfile sharing.

This module requires: none

Put this line into your Eggdrop configuration file to load the transfer module:

loadmodule transfer

There are also some variables you can set in your config file:

set max-dloads 3

Set here the maximum number of simultaneous downloads to allow for each user.

set dcc-block 0

Set here the block size for dcc transfers. ircII uses 512 bytes, but admits that may be too small. 1024 is standard these days. Set this to 0 to use turbo-dcc (recommended).

set copy-to-tmp 1

Enable this setting if you want to copy files to a temporary location before sending or receiving them. This might be useful for file stability, but if your directories are NFS mounted, it’s a pain. Setting this to 1 is not advised for big files or if you’re low on disk space.

set xfer-timeout 30

Set here the time (in seconds) to wait before an inactive transfer times out.

set sharefail-unlink 1

By default, Eggdrop will abort the linking process if userfile sharing is enabled but the userfile transfer fails. Set this to 0 to keep the bots linked if the userfile transfer fails and retry every minute (both bots must be v1.9.0 or higher).
