MyChat Server
[+] (03.02.2018) (Admin) settings to limit user registration number from the same IP address or HardwareID;

This option is made for public Internet servers to avoid possible attacks. Protection is enabled by default, the maximum of identical IDs — 100, for MAC/Hardware — 10.

If you have a large number of users and they connect via NAT then disable the IP limitation or increase it.

MyChat Server
[+] (03.03.2018) (Admin) new tool to block users by HardwareID.

HardwareID is a special unique string for a computer where MyChat Client is running. The string depends on the microprocessor type and hard drive model. You can check user HardwareID information in the "User manager" section on the Admin Control Panel.

MyChat Server
[+] (03.06.2018) (Admin) automatic registration and activation of Telegram users in MyChat.

telegram-integration-new-features.png (29.69 KiB) Viewed 1996 times

These settings are disabled by default. If you enable them, then as soon as someone subscribes to Telegram bot messages, MyChat Server will automatically create and activate a user account on MyChat Server and "bind" the new user's UIN to his TelegramID.

A person nickname, name and surname o will be automatically written in MyChat user profile if this information is specified in the Telegram account.

Additionally, in the Admin interface, the name of your Telegram-bot is displayed, so you do not have to remember it when you need to subscribe new users.

MyChat Server
[-] (03.10.2018) (Admin) problems when importing users from the domain with big size photos. Fixed.

Turned out to be, that users can download file of any size (for example, JPG image of 5 MB in size) as their domain photo. In the information interface, the photo is shown in small size, but the domain controller saves the originals.

When importing such users on MyChat Server, the automatic protection against the overflow activates, and the connection between Admin Panel and Server gets lost. Importing domain users becomes impossible.

We made additional tests to avoid such issues. Photos of any size can be imported from Active Directory, but on MyChat Server such photos are resized without saving the originals.

MyChat Client
[*] (03.12.2018) when MyChat Client receives the file directly on top of the same file that is already opened in another application, an error message appears, and the file receiving is interrupted.

How does this happen?

Two users are on different subnets. One user sends the file to another user. The file sending model is a client-server-client. Let it be "Agenda.docx".

The recipient opens the file in MS Word, so the file is busy by one of the program mode (MS Word).

Now the file with the same name is sent again. It turns out, that MyChat can not re-accept it, because the file was opened in another program. The file receiving is interrupted with a notification that indicates which file is skipped.

MyChat Client
[*] (04.23.2018) improved logic of the "Remember the selected folder for every user" setting to receive files in the chat.

save-path-for-received-files.png
save-path-for-received-files.png (18.02 KiB) Viewed 1992 times

If this setting is enabled, MyChat Client will remember the last folder where the files were received and saved from specific users. By default, the files are saved in the "C: \ Users \% USERNAME% \ Documents \ MyChat \", in the folder that has the sender's name. You can change the folder for a specific person and the program will remember it.

If you need to save files from all users to the default folder, ignoring the personal folders that you have ever selected, then just uncheck this box.

MyChat Server
[+] (04.26.2018) new logging tool.

First, we made log levels:

Log levels of MyChat system events
system-logs-level.png (117.68 KiB) Viewed 1986 times

At the bottom are the serious ones, everything is recorded, so logs becomes bigger. At midnight the server transfers the logs on the default level (in case if an administrator forgot to do that).

System logs are stored in the database, not in text files. This feature gives higher speed for data selection, you can mane filters, receive help about errors (error links in the log texts):

MyChat Server
[-] (03.27.2018) error "Cannot open file "C:\Program Files (x86)\MyChat Server\languages\russian.ini"". The system can't find the specified path. Fixed.

This error occurs when someone manually deletes MyChat Server localization files. Now the server displays the diagnostic message such as "Error #9999: localization file does not exist! (english.ini). Please, run setup program to restore data. Closing application" and turns off.

A browser opens immediately with the help page on the Network Software Solutions website, where you can find out what is need to be done to restore the server work.
