How to disable /dns irc.mynet.net from chatters

Post by OpEn » Sun Jan 28, 2007 6:11 am

Dear Helpers,
Could you please tell me how to disable /dns from chatters or even IRCops?

when i type /dns irc.mynet.net it shows :
* Dns resolving irc.mynet.net
-
* Dns resolved irc.mynet.net to 00.00.000.00.
Thank you so much in advance

That's a mIRC command, and it has nothing to do with your server.

Look at what the server DNS command does (use /quote DNS or /raw DNS):

Code: Select all

 Returns information about the IRC server's DNS cache.
 Note, since most clients have a builtin DNS command,
 you will most likely need to use /raw DNS to use this.
 There are also 2 other variants:
 'DNS l' will show you the DNS cache entries
 'DNS i' will give you details about the nameserver config
Computers are machines that cause trouble you wouldn't normally have if you wouldn't have a computer.

Why would you want to stop people from getting the IP of your server?

Users need the IP of your server in order to connect to it. If you don't want people having your IP, then don't run a server.

If they are normal users:
/raw dns irc.mynet.net
[19:53] -> Server: dns irc.mynet.net
-
Permission Denied- You do not have the correct IRC operator privileges

That is something completely different. Read the monual for what it is.

Normal users should not have access to that command at all, it is an oper command.

Opers will see that information with or without access to the command, becuase it's the cache of IPs that have connected to your server. It also gives the DNS information of the server the IRCd is running on. If you don't want your opers seeing that information, then don't give them oper.
