dcc rename [<nick>] <name> [<new name>] dcc rename -chat <dcc-nick> <new nick>


Sometimes someone will offer you a filename that you already have, and you want to get the file but not clobber your existing file. With the /DCC RENAME command, you can change the name that this new file will be saved as, sparing your existing file from removal.

You can also rename the nickname of the other person in a DCC CHAT connection. You must use this new nickname (prefixed with a = when used in a context where a nickname is expected) afterwards.


  1. chat rename a nick in DCC CHAT instead of a file


To rename file foo to bar from joebob:

/dcc rename joebob foo bar

To rename joebob to jimbob in a DCC CHAT:

/dcc rename -chat joebob jimbob
