IRC and mIRC Questions
How do I add new file types in mIRC so they are not ignored when I try to download them?
Go to Tools > Options. Then Open the DCC tree of options and select "Ignore". Type in the file type you would like to accept
by typing in a * first then the .file type. So for example AVI files are not accpeted as a default in mIRC so I would type
in "*.avi" then click on "Add". Now you should accept these files for download.
I keep getting this "local host unkown", how do I fix this?
Click on the Start Bar and select "Run", then type in "command" and hit OK. A DOS window will pop up type in "cd.." and hit
enter until you see just "C:\>". Now type in "ipconfig". A list of your current IP set up is given. Now in mIRC select Tools
> Options. Then in the Connect tree select Local Info and type in the Local Host text field the "Connection-specific DNS Suffix"
that was given to you in DOS. Then type in the IP Address text area in mIRC the IP Address that was given to you in DOS. Make
sure that Local Host is checked and select OK.
