Re: server name mismatch on link

Good!

I've found and fixed a bug in the development version, apparently a link block with link::outgoing but without link::incoming caused this confusing message (even though it's perfectly OK). The final fix will end up in UnrealIRCd 4.0.17.

Re: server name mismatch on link

Is the name in the me { } block on the hub, really deadnetsmqxvz7j2.onion?
It's saying there's a mismatch (although the error message may have an error in it :D)

Re: UnrealIrcd: Please get proper reverse DNS

It's an unusual measure, but the reason for this is that our server is constantly attacked by drones, which happen to be (>98%) on unresolved IP's. We of course have other countermeasures as well, but one of them is this and it really helps. For regulars (like you) I don't mind adding an exception a...

UnrealIRCd 4.0.16.1 & 4.0.17-rc1

Not one but two UnrealIRCd releases today. But they are not for everyone.. ;) UnrealIRCd 4.0.16.1 fixes a couple of issues that affected only a few users. If your UnrealIRCd 4.0.16 is working fine then I'm not recommending an upgrade at this point. Just use it for new installations. Also available i...

Re: Anope not connect to Unreal

Also, I see you don't have a link { } block for your services in your unrealircd.conf. But UnrealIRCd will definately give you a warning about that when anope tries to link ;)

PS: :I will leave further help up to someone else

Re: Anope not connect to Unreal

Strange. You could try linking without ssl.. so in your services.conf
port = 6667
ssl = no

(Since you're on localhost SSL is not important anyway)

Re: Anope not connect to Unreal

If 1) you connect as a user to your irc server and become IRCOp, and then 2) you start anope... what do you see on IRC?
UnrealIRCd may give you some server notices with additional information.

Tips on fighting spam, proxies and drones

The IRCOp guide now contains a section called: Fighting spam and drones.
It shows the current best practices of using DNS Blacklists to combat drones/proxies, the antirandom module and a brief mention of spamfilter.

New: IRCOp guide

UnrealIRCd already has lots of documentation about configuration , user modes , channel modes and an excellent FAQ . However, it seemed to be lacking information about how to do everyday IRCOp tasks . Especially for people who are new to running an IRC server these are important things to learn. The...

Re: SSL cert/key mismatch

Strange. I've never heard of this error. Do you still have this problem?
If so, do you mind sharing the host/IP so we can test?
If you already resolved it, what was it?

Re: Cannot connect to SSL port

Did you tell mIRC that you are connecting to an SSL port? You have to do so explicitly:

Code: Select all

/server server-name-or-ip +6697
Note the + sign before the port.

Re: WARNING: Time jumped ~328 seconds ahead!

Most likely the WARNING regarding the time jump is a result of <<something>> on your machine. So not related to UnrealIRCd. So: 1. <<something>> makes your machine stall / slow down incredibly 2. this causes a huge server lag + WARNING about time jump + likely other things with any other daemons run...

Re: Make Install not Working

Apparently during ./Config you told UnrealIRCd to install to /home/java This is unusual, you should install it to something like /home/java/unrealircd Run this (and answer the second question correctly during ./Config): make clean ./Config make make install Once that works, remove the mess you previ...
