AOL User password?

Post by SpaceDoG » Thu Mar 23, 2006 3:42 pm

I was wondering if there is a way to set it up for individual AOL users to have to send a password in order to connect and to monitor how many users are using that password? /me hates AOL users because they like to easily ban evade then I have to block the whole network including people who don't need to be banned. Was hoping someone out there had some type of solution for their crappy network...

For a better control, you can also use the module userauth module.

That was quite unnessecary. The allow block is not capable of the monitoring he has asked for, and it is a significant portion of the request.

On the contrary - setting a password is every bit part of the allow block.

Example:

Code: Select all

ban user {
    mask "*@*.aol.com";
    reason "AOL Users are required to contact an admin to connect.";
};
except ban {
    mask "username@*.aol.com";
};
allow {
    ip NOMATCHING;
    host username@*.aol.com;
    password "thepasswordhere" { hash-it-if-you-want; };
};
You might want to change the ban user to use AOL's IP ranges (if you want to find them). Repeat the except ban / allow bits for each AOL user in question. Note: this setup will still allow you to /gline, /zline, and /gzline AOL users, but not /kline them.

[edit]Note: I've heard that username matching in allow blocks only works if the user has a working identd server. You may have to educate your users in how to use mIRC's builtin identd server or if they don't use mIRC, how to set one up.[/edit]

Agreed, but the monitoring for sharing was an important part of the question, which is not covered by the allow block, or any module of which I am aware.

But if you do require a unique ident reply for each aol user, you can grep your connect logs for that.

Well "how many users are using the password" is simple:

- If you require a password for anyone from AOL, /who +h *.aol.com and count! (There's no badpasscont so you can only use one pass atm.)
- If you require specific username/password combinations, /who +uh username *.aol.com ... and count!

[edit]oops: +u is for username...[/edit]

You can use as many passes as you want, just badpasscont on all but the last. (or, first, since they are read backwards)

Oh. Right. But if each password gets its own ident required, then its not a problem, because if you dont have that ident, the password isnt checked.

This actually works perfectly... it unbans the specified AOL and requires them to have a pass and I can look to see what AOL users are on and if there is someone with multiple idents they get removed easily.
