[Solved] Request : if server not answer

Unread postby scottjcampbell » Mon Aug 31, 2009 10:24 pm

Hi, i think it would be good if the program could try to connect to a server firstly, then if that fails, try another.

e.g. if the person is using it at home, they can connect to the server locally
if they are at university/school, they can connect via the external web address.

Also, the option for the administrator to restrict the closing of the application by the user, the app can only be closed via web console.


Cheers, Scott Campbell.

For this,
I think (maybe) it's better to have an exe to check if IM works, and start it again when not...

Hi, i can see what you mean, though is there anyway to make it automatically go through those steps, and select the new server by itself?

Cheers, Scott :D

New option _WAIT_STARTUP_IF_SERVER_UNAVAILABLE on server version 2.0.3: If server unavailable on startup, client still wait (without warn).
