Need IRC Channel help

Discussion in 'Windows - P2P software' started by newlife, Mar 13, 2003.

    I am brand new to IRC and am looking for good channels for file sharing. I have connected to many of the channels that came with MIrc. They all suck!!!

    I have yet to go into a channel with a lot of people and none are talking.

    AM I doing someting wrong?

    try connecting to efnet, then type the command /list divx or /list vcd or whatever and you should find good trading channels!

    Am bit puzzled about newlifes message, most prolly the one who ends up xdcc listing me when pops in the channels where loitering around...;)

    To my understanding no channels "comes" with mIRC, only fair amount of networks listed to which you can or cannot log in. Efnet is one such network, actually one of the largest (over 100 000 users all night long). The method what Dela mentioned, is of course aplicable when logged in to any irc-network. Just a hint, there are also xdcc-search-bot sites on www, which list such "trading" channels, even packet by packet. I can't of course mention none here, just use google again...:)

    EC: Agreed, by far the best way is to use something like my downloader!

    If you're looking for a certain file in particular, check out packetnews.com, it will list what channels and what network the file is on and will give you links to access those channels with ease.

    I use mIrc 3 years ago but now I've given it up.
    I'd like to download file from FTP,which I think the speed may be faster.

    Then you should have said you only wanted to use it for chat!! However 80% of people use it for file trading tso i assumed!!

    ircspy.com is what I use to search for packets or files if you prefer. when you click on one, it automatically saves it to your clipboard so all you have to do is paste it and your in there, also, if your only using irc, try using excursion along with it.

    I have to say speed is as important as quality.
    It is true that ftp searching results sometimes r not that good as we want ,but if we get a active link we can usually download it at a high speed.
    Actually I always download files from ftp or http.
    I am just wonderring why my eMule speed is so slow~~~~
    Of course I believe p2p such as eMule r really good tools.

    eMule is slow because when you start downloading you are in the queues of your sources so after a while it speeds up!! You have to get used to running eMule 24/7 and just keep dumping file after file onto your download queue like i do :)
