Re: mIRC alias or raw syntax?

To answer your direct question: In case of IRCOp commands, most clients won't know anything about those (except /KILL maybe), so the raw syntax (GLINE user@host) would be identical to the displayed syntax except for the slash at the beginning (/GLINE user@host). If you are a client coder and want to...

Re: Limitserv

What that module does is quite similar to channel mode +f with a 'j' limit. It is the old fashioned 1990's way of doing it. Scripts like that (in the past it was via eggdrop) are in fact the reason why I created channel mode +f in the year 2003. For more information, see: Channel mode +f . Channel m...

Re: Failed to load SSL certificate

It's strange to have only a key and not a cert. The only reason I can think of is if you CTRL+C'd (so aborted) half-way during the installation (./Config). Then you may end up with a situation like that. You can run "make pem" to generate them again (and then "make install"). Yes, you need them, eve...

Re: unable to make temporary file: Permission denied

You thought I might have posted fake logs and tried to solve my issue? Nah, don't think too evil. People here try to help you with good intentions. Lord255 just thought that something was wrong, the mismatch in path names, so he highlighted it because he thought that was the issue. It seems the dis...

Re: unable to make temporary file: Permission denied

Ok, then I don't know, maybe you can ask some support from FreeBSD people. Most likely you will have the same problem while trying to compile any software from a .tar.gz as a regular user, so it is not UnrealIRCd specific. Must be some kind of generic permission or configuration issue on your FreeBS...

Re: unable to make temporary file: Permission denied

Perhaps you extracted the .tar.gz as root? Then the 'iRC' user cannot create files/directories in it properly. Or you use some kind of incorrect su(do) usage which leaves TMP/TEMP pointing to a wrong temp directory. I suggest to remove your unrealircd-5.0.6 directory, and then do it again from the b...

Re: snomask +f Recvq origin

No, I'm afraid not. When the recvq is exceeded, it means it the receive queue (=the queue of commands yet to be processed) exceeds a certain number of bytes. Since the commands have not been processed, the server does not know what the commands were supposed to do or to which channel they were direc...

Re: Connection handshake timeout

Personally, with 3 servers, I would just add 2 link blocks (for A+C) on B, and 2 link blocks (for A+B) on C... with autoconnect... then each server will connect to one or the other, no matter what happens. Personally I wouldn't care much about how it ends up linked. But if you do want to enforce a t...

Re: Connection handshake timeout

I would suggest checking if the port is open with 'nc' (install the 'nc' tool if needed via apt-get or yum). Run the following commands all on server 'C': nc -v [ipofserverB] [port] eg: nc -v 1.2.3.4 6697 You said linking from C to B works, so I would expect you to see something like "Connection to ...

Re: Hub question

That is correct, most of the memory that you need to reserve in UnrealIRCd (so when we speak of memory requirements) are for buffering of individual client connections. Those are buffers for sending/receiving traffic and those are only needed per local connection, not for remote connections. Other t...

Re: Can't connect to my IRC server through SSL port 7501; connection dropped.

Works fine for me, port 7501 with SSL/TLS. Could test with another client and see if that one works with SSL/TLS? Like, Hexchat or mIRC. These clients should give you a proper error message. If the issue persists, let us know the error message. To fully diagnose it is usually best to have an extra c...
