Direct Connect with NCDC
A proper DC++ / ADC compatible implementation was one of the more important reasons I got my server. In a graphical environment I use EiskaltDC++ as a client, so I had no experience with text-based DC clients. Today, I finally had time to set up NCurses Direct Connect. First, I compiled it myself. You should always compile things yourself if they aren’t available in your repository. Then I created a new user ’ncdc’ to run the programme. adduser ncdc I created a very basic, simple init.d/ script that executes this line: su -c screen\ -U\ -dmS\ ncdc\ ncdc ncdc This will start NCDC with its own user (giving it limited rights) and in a UTF-8 enabled screen that is automatically detached.
