Remote Control?

Post by gammah » 2004-08-06 11:55

Is there a mod or other way to control a remote session of DC++? I would like to be able to run DC++ at home and control it from work, without having to runa remote desktop or something. It would be cool to have my local DC++ client be able to control the instance running remotely.

Any possibility of something like this?

There's no existing solution. It's been proposed before. Some users really like the idea of a web interface.

There might be some coder working on this somewhere, but probably not - use Remote Desktop or UltraVNC (which will let you capture just a single window on your Home PC) instead.

Thakns for the replies.

Gotta say tho, I love how people read the entire post for things like "without having to runa remote desktop or something" which includes no VNC. That shit is all too slow for me.

I wonder about maybe a command proxy?

Well, nobody is working on this feature, and it's very far down my personal list - I don't forsee it going into DC++ at any point in the near to mid future.

When I can't say yes to someone, I like to give them workarounds. Thus, the suggestions.
