NAME dccsend — send a file to a mIRC /dccserver
[-hv] [-n nickname] [-p port] [-r remotenick] host filename
sends a file to remote host running a mIRC /dccserver or dccserver(1)
. The host
argument specifies the name or IP of the server where dccserver(1)
is running, and the filename
argument denotes the name of the local file to send to the remote host. You can get the hostname or IP of a fellow IRCer by doing “/whois remotenick”, the first line will probably contain “firstname.lastname@example.org” or “email@example.com”.
Display a short help message.
Set nickname used in handshake to nickname. Should be the same nickname that you use on IRC, otherwise some servers might complain and close the connection. Defaults to “dccsend”.
Denote port on which the remote dccserver(1) is listening. Defaults to 59, since that is mIRC's default port.
Expected nickname on the remote side.
Display program name and version number.
