It uses the DCC feature of irc to send files to other users. iroffer will connect to an irc server and let people request files from it. Unlike similar programs, iroffer is not a script, it is a standalone executable written entirely in c from scratch with high transfer speed and effeciency in mind. iroffer has been able to sustain upto 50MByte/sec transfer rate over a gigabit ethernet link. --- Supported Platforms --- Linux FreeBSD, OpenBSD, BSD/OS, NetBSD Solaris/SunOS UP-UX IRIX Digital UNIX MacOS X Server MacOS X AIX Win95/98/NT/2000 All other platforms have not been tested, but will probabily work --- To Compile --- Run the "Configure" script by typing "./Configure" then type "make". no errors or warnings should appear when compiling A sample config file is provided. --- Why use iroffer to offer? --- - extremely fast dcc transfers - extremely low cpu usage, and reasonable ram usage - its a program not a script that is slowed by a bulky irc program - only completed transfers are counted - supports dcc resume - set max amount of transfers per hostname - user friendly error messages for users (no "clamp timeout") - allows a pack to be designated as a "high demand" pack which can have special limitations and its own separate queue - supports virtual hosts - auto-send feature, send a pack to someone when they say something - auto-saves xdcc information - remote administration via /msg or DCC CHAT - bandwidth monitoring, shows last 2 minutes bandwidth average - Allow sending of queued packs when using low amounts of bandwidth, comes in handy when all slots are filled with people transferring 1k/sec, will keep sending out queued items while bandwidth usage is under a specified amount - Background or Foreground mode. background mode does not require screen and is cronable - Chroot support (run iroffer from inside a chroot'ed environment) - overall and pack minspeed - maximum bandwidth limiting, when set, iroffer will not use more than the set amount of bandwidth (keeps your sysadmin happy) - can set different maximum bandwidth limits depending on time of day and day of week (keeps your sysadmin very happy) - logging - auto-ignores flooders - support for direct, bnc, wingate, and custom proxy irc server connections - ignore list --- What files can I offer? --- - Your channel's rules or FAQ - Pictures, Music, Programs, Shareware/Freeware, Programs you have written, etc... - Help elevate overloaded ftp and http servers by mirroring content for your channel's members - Note: Be sure to consult and follow the appropriate copyright statement, distibution policy, and/or license agreement before offering any content you didn't create yourself --- How to let colors work while using screen --- create a file in your home directory named ".screenrc", and put the following lines in it: termcap vt100 'AF=\E[3%dm:AB=\E[4%dm' terminfo vt100 'AF=\E[3%p1%dm:AB=\E[4%p1%dm' --- How To Use Cron --- Edit the iroffer.cron file's iroffer_dir, iroffer_exec, and iroffer_pid variables then crontab -e and place the following line in the editor */5 * * * * /full/path/to/iroffer/iroffer.cron --- Signal Handling --- iroffer will handle the following signal: SIGUSR1 (kill -USR1 xxxx) jumps to another server (same as admin command "jump") SIGUSR2 (kill -USR2 xxxx) re-reads config file (same as admin command "rehash") SIGTERM (kill xxxx) shuts down iroffer (same as admin command "shutdown") --- End of README --- PMG
