DCC filter config

Beitragvon dalek1999 » 6. Jan 2010, 16:00

Just testing out Spami.

How do I configure DCC filter to work? Not clear what I should be entering in server names. Followed link from sowmeher on website which was supposed to give list of server names but I could not see any such list.

Tried dcc1.dcc-servers.net and got error msg "cannot create map.txt"

Spami looks quite good on paper but there does not seem to be any good documentation anywhere (not in English anyway)

thx
John

Hi!

The servers which are already in the list should be sufficient. It should not be necessary to change anything.

The english documentation is available from the main menu. You can also visit the following link:
http://wiki.spamihilator.com

Sincerely,
Michel

Hi

After I installed Spami I go to settings DCC config and there are no entries in server list - it is blank.

What I am asking is where are the server names we are supposed to Add in here. I tried the Dcc1... etc. and as per previous post Spami gives error message about "map.txt" and no further information. I see no further info in documentation about servers names or error message explanations.

thx
John

Hi dalek1999!

I wonder why you have the list not showing any DCC-server ...
Perhaps in your installation you have a windows user rights problem.

Hallo John!

So I'm not sure about what has caused the lack of servers in your DCC Filter properties, but I'm not sure if it's appropriate to just write new servers into the list. Anyway, here is a screenshot:

Hi Chactory

Thanks for your screenshot list of dcc server names. Those were the ones I tried to add manually.

So if I try to add dcc1.dcc-servers.net i get the following error dialogue box:-

"Server could not be added"
"Error message: Could not create map.txt"

I noticed also that when I select DCC from the plugins tree there is a noticeable delay before it displays the form where you configure server names (blank in my case). All other plugins display their config screen instantly.

I think something is wrong with my DCC plugin. I have tried reloading it. I don't really want to unistall and reinstall Spami in case I lose my testing work to date ( I read from someone here where backup and restore of settings did not work correctly)

thx
John

Hi John!

Hmm ... and what about your firewall or anti-virus programs ... are those possibly blocking the DCC Filter dll-files?

Reghards, Chactory

Hello Chactory

I don't think it is my AV or firewall - had no alerts from these.

What are requiremnts of DCC dll anyway? - I see nothing documented re ports, protocols , permissions etc. Documentation seems to lack quite a lot of important details ;-). I have only been using Spami a few days and I've probably discovered more trawling thru the forum than from the manual.

thx

Hello John!

Maybe this helps: http://wiki.spamihilator.com/doku.php?id=en:dccfilter.

But I wouldn't try refitting that, because there must be a problem, which will spoil the filter function anyway ...

Hi

This really seems to be a user rights problem. Although you're admin.

The DCC Filter writes its settings to Spamihilator configuration directory. Please see the Wiki on how to find that one:
http://wiki.spamihilator.com/doku.php?i ... onfigfiles

Please check if the subdirectory "plugins\dccfilter" exists and is writeable.

Sincerely,
Michel

Hi

dccfilter folder existed in program files/spami/plugins3 only.

No dccfilter folder existed in docs and settings.....spami/plugins

So I created a dccfilter folder in docs and setings...../plugins then Reloaded filters.
Hey presto now dccfilter config screen show 4 identical entries "clnt_rcv" and I can manually add entries "dcc1.dcc-servers.net" etc.

Looks like dcc filter install failed partially?

Do I need the "clnt_rcv" entries or are these just some sort of placeholders?

FYI machine running XP Pro SP3

thx

Yes, it seems to be the case.

I don't know them. They don't seem to be servers, so delete them.

Bye

OK deleted the strange servers names and manually added dcc1 to dcc5 servers and now the dcc filter seems to be working fine.

thanks to all who helped.
