Re: BOPM not working

I know it's not an answer to your question but I would just use blacklist { } blocks in UnrealIRCd if I were you.

Re: Block dcc and xdcc

Sure. To block DCC you have a number of options:
* deny dcc { } block
* setting and forcing everyone +T so no CTCP's are allowed
* spamfilter

Re: AUTOVOICE all users when join

If everyone gets it, then what is the point of having voice? :) It's also a little dangerous because case of a text flood you cannot set the channel +m to shut everyone up and resolve the situation. Or, to be more precise: you can set the channel +m but everyone (with voice) can still speak so it ha...

Re: Conneten with SSL port

Usually means a non-SSL user trying to connect on an SSL port.

Harmless in any case, that's why it's sent to the junk snomask ('j').

Re: Runs but wont connect

See this faq entry: FAQ: Unable to connect to IRC server (VPS/shell) From the post above I gather you followed step 1, 2 and 3. Did you check step 4? The firewall. To quote the FAQ: Check the firewall If you cannot connect by IP then you need to check the firewall of the server. Consult the document...

Re: Runs but wont connect

See this faq entry: FAQ: Unable to connect to IRC server (VPS/shell) From the post above I gather you followed step 1, 2 and 3. Did you check step 4? The firewall. It's very likely to be the problem. As for your telnet error, that is just because you need to 'telnet 127.0.0.1 6667' and not 'telnet 1...

Re: Show when user does /WHOIS (Unrealircd 4.0.10)

You can enable this by setting user mode +W (/mode yournick +W).

You can also set this user mode in your oper::modes (see Oper Block).

Increased protection for UnrealIRCd websites (please report issues)

Like any website, we receive our daily share of scanners that scan the entire internet for vulnerabilities. We have also been the frequent victim of DDoS attacks for years now. More recently, however, UnrealIRCd is becoming the victim of targetted attacks as well, with thousands of hack attempts per...

Crash issue in UnrealIRCd: apply hot fix ASAP or upgrade to 4.0.11

UnrealIRCd versions 4.0.8 - 4.0.10 on *NIX can be crashed by a remote user. This is due to a buffer overflow issue. The issue is actually present in all UnrealIRCd versions but because the data overflows into unused variables after the buffer previously went undetected and caused no harm. UnrealIRCd...

Updated UnrealIRCd 4.0.10 for Windows

LibreSSL, the library we use for SSL/TLS on Windows, has released an update. There seemed to be a security issue in the way they implemented ECDSA. This is only an issue if you use elliptic curve certificates, not if you use RSA certificates (=the default). We have replaced the Windows download of U...

Re: Help me With running the server

I think the comments from Stealth and Eren24 are good ones. You should really stop and who you trust before you let them install your server. So: Sure, ask other people's help with your configuration file, problems you run into, documentation you're looking for, etc. But don't give them shell access...
