O.P. file server
i was thinking it would be cool to have a file server for msn, pure irc styles

so people could navigate through your files, put files in queue to be sent, and request for files to be sent

i think it would be really really cool, even if it was super bassic, becuaase it would only be needed on the server end

here is what i mean by example:

!list
!download 13


with even just those two commands, where one listed ALL files, and the other was to download them, so it would look like this:

them:
!list
me:
1 blah.txt
2 blahish.avi
3 blahblah.mp3
4 mcblah.rar
them:
!download 1
them:
!download 4

and you could have settings to have 1 transfer at a time, and the rest go into a queue

also i was thinking for the files to be index, just using a txt file db, and be able to list both files, and folders (and the folder could either be treated as something to be scanned for files on the insed, or a folder as one file)

RE: file server
That can be done with a plugin, however wouldn't it be easier to use a ftp (or tftp) server?

RE: file server
Thats a bit different to running a file sharing thing like Gergith said.
It may work..I just tested it and you can run it in more than 1 convo at a time..don't know if you could automatically add files or anything, or if there is a limit on how many instances of it you can have open at one time.

I coded something like this a while back in vb6. It wasn't very difficult, but got broken when a new version of Plus came out.

RE: file server
FileServer Plugins:

made by Pleh:
old version (v1.2), with installer:
http://shoutbox.menthix.net/showthread.php?tid=17934

recommended "latest" version (v2.0), but without the installer:
http://shoutbox.menthix.net/showthread.php?tid=17...d=196491#pid196491

install instructions for version 2.0:
Note that Pleh's FileSharing plugin is a VB-plugin, this means you have to register the DLL with regsvr32, but you also need to add a registry entry for it!!! So, the easy way is:
* Install version 1.2 (to add the correct values to the registry)
* after that, unregister the OLD DLL
* unzip the version 2.0 DLL and replace the old DLL with this new DLL
* register the (new) DLL again...

(doesn't work with Plus! 3 anymore)

RE: file server
To be honest I'm planning to do this for some time now, but I don't have the time for it right now, and there will be some things that I have to figure out first.

The reason I'm doing this is that I'd like a plugin with the possibility to use FileTransfer Plus for transfers...

May take some time, but I want it to be a usefull plugin:).
