I don't exactly understand what you mean. Do you mean that someone is uploading from you and you want them to be able to upload another file at the same time?

If so, then it is not possible, as a user can only download/upload one file at a time.

I think neo-modus supports uploading multiplie files from the same user at once.

Sounds like an interesting feature "grant user multiple file uploading rights".

hello
If I want one user upload from me two files in the same time I must
1/Open dc ++ and cd
2/one with one name one with another one in two differents hub
3/And then he must with his DC++ connect to these two hubs

Rather complicated but no impossible. So why is it impossible to grant him to do that with only one dc++ opened?
Is that a very difficult feature to do?

DC++ specifically removed this "feature"

[quote=changelog.txt]
-- 0.12 2002-01-14 --
* Fixed multiple connections per user bug[/quote]

That might not be the right entry, but it is true.

I'm usually all for making something a configurable option, but I just don't think this is desirable. It might not be possible either, without restructuring the UserManager and UploadManager.
