    Options for a Server

    So my server is finally finished! At least the server side of it is. I'm about half done with the interface - and I need to get some input here. I have a bunch of preferences stored in the LOG file, and they are also overridable both through the console interface and with command line parameters. The problem is - what options can I set? I just want to make sure I'm thinking of all the common options. What I have so far:

    - Verbose - prints something to the screen for all major actions
    - Maximum number of connections allowable
    - Ports to use
    - IP address of current computer

    Can anyone think of other settings that I should really add?

    Here is a list to think about:

    Assumably, you can set the root directory? (Probable don't want to use C:\ as your root directory!)

    Ay yes - root was another one I was thinking of. Yeah - I'll default it to C:\... ha ha.... that would be funny. Well thanks for the list - that should be all I need.
