How to enable Channels with '+' as prefix? (modeless)

Post by java-koch » Sun Jun 17, 2007 1:06 am

Hello,
I have installed and configured UnrealIRCD on a windows pc. In the documentation I cannot find anything about channels that begin with a plus sign, like +test, as described in RFC 2811.
I need these channels for an online game, and the linux version of ircd supports these channels.

Text from RFC 2811:
Channels with '+' as prefix do not support channel modes. This means that all the modes are unset, with the exception of the 't' channel flag which is set.

When I connect to my local UnrealIRCD and type "/join +test" I get an error "No such channel (+test)", and it does not create the channel.

Any Idea?

Regards, KK

What about /join #test

/join #test does work and creates the channel #test. But I need a channel +test. These +channels do not support modes and do not have an operator, so all users are equal.

Unreal is not RFC 2811 compliant, so it is not supported. RFC 2811 is not a standard IRC protocol, so not very many servers support it.

OK, thank you for your reply.
Is there a way to create some 'standard' channels on the server that are always there and where no-one else can be operator?

Option 1) Join an eggdrop or other bot and deop it
Option 2) Use services to register the channel and set the channels founder to a dummy user that nobody uses.

If you take option 2 then you might want to look at the official-channels block for listing the channels in /list when theyre empty.
