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...

Re: CACert.Org Server Certificate Installation Assistance

As Gottem said CACert offers pretty much no benefit over the default self-signed certificate.
You should go with Let's Encrypt instead. Then you get a 'real' certificate.

Re: botserv

That would be a services question, like for anope (or whatever you use). Not UnrealIRCd.

Also, not related to this but you should upgrade to UnrealIRCd 4.x

Re: Where's UnrealIRCd older versions?

I also posed the question on twitter: What more could we do to get people to move to #UnrealIRCd 4.x? I'm not sure if I will get any serious replies, but who knows there's something I haven't yet thought of. We already have a configuration file converter, ship with various 3rd party modules.

Re: i cant compile ( no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH )

Try:

Code: Select all

usermod -a -G src ircd
Sorry I'm used to editing /etc/group directly, but suggesting that to you didn't sound like a good idea :D

Re: i cant compile ( no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH )

Sorry I meant

Code: Select all

useradd -G groupname ircd
So useradd not groupadd.

I hope that helps because this is going to be my last post in this topic (this is more about general Linux help and not UnrealIRCd) :D

Re: i cant compile ( no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH )

First do this to figure out the group that is needed: $ ls -al --dereference /usr/bin/gcc -rwxr-xr-x 1 root src 832120 Dec 25 2014 /usr/bin/gcc The group is the second row, in this example it's src Now you need to add your ircd user to the group src . You run this as root: useradd -G src ircd Then l...

Re: i cant compile ( no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH )

So if you run 'gcc --version' from the same account that you are running './Config' it looks good? Just making sure you don't have any non-root restrictions or something. Some machines have it so normal users cannot execute 'gcc' for security reasons (I know, it's ridiculous). Usually you need to pu...
