New User Instructions:
PLEASE READ AND DO THIS STEP FIRST!!
Before you attempt to set up mIRC and OmenServe, verify that you can DCC Send files. If you cannot send manually, you will be unable to use OmenServe (or any other serving type script). The best way to check this is to start a DCC Chat with another person.
In a channel, right click on another persons' nick -- (somebody you have asked to DCC Chat with who can accept DCC Chat)
A DCC Chat window will come up. You will see "Waiting for acknowledgement..." If you cannot get past this, you cannot send.
Sends that fail are usually caused by firewall or router issues. If you are using Windows Firewall, shut it off and re-try your DCC Chat. If you are using a router, go to http://www.portforward.com/ for instructions on your brand of router, with walkthrough help for mIRC and DCC connections
Once you've corrected the firewall and router issues, try to DCC
If you see the following text in a DCC Chat window, you've connected properly and can DCC chat as well as DCC Send files!
"Waiting for acknowledgement...
DCC Chat connection established"
You may see this window pop up, Click "Yes" to allow OmenServe to run.
On the Status window, you will see the following:
Open OmenServe by pressing F2 or right-clicking on a Status window and selecting OmenServe v2.70
There are several things you must do on the Main tab:
On the QuickList window:
The first time you generate a list, it may take from several seconds to several minutes. Generating subsequent lists will take less time.
On the mIRC Status window, you will see a list completed message such as:
To see your list, on the List tab, double click the list name. (EX: Fiction). Your text file will open and your list will be available for you to view.
YOUR FINAL STEP:
Set up is now completed. You should be serving the list you selected, in the channel you added.
Failure to do all of the above steps will result in a non-functional installation
Don't get fancy - don't add additional lists or channels until you have OmenServe working properly in one channel.
Congratulations, you should now be serving. Take a look at the rest of the options at your leisure. The options are pretty self explanatory. However, if you aren't sure, have a look at www.omenscripts.net for the OmenServe help file.
