IRC Network[edit | edit source]
IRC users can configure their computers to act as a file server (fserv) to make their collection of images, video clips, audio clips, and other types of files available for others to download via a DCC session. In channels where an fserv is operational, the fserv owner will post a message. The message provides command line instructions and a description of the files that are available. A user must intentionally initiate a connection to an fserv in order to select a specific file to download.
