/users ...

Post by RaidenJ » Sun Aug 17, 2008 3:44 pm

Well this is something i've always wondered and couldnt find anything on it so i was wondering if there is anyway to enable to /users command? Since it currently outputs:
* USERS has been disabled

Thanks.

Do you even know what it does?

If you assume it lists all the IRC users then you are incorrect.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think that's exactly what it does altough Unreal does not use it and a reply is required.


5.5 Users
Command: USERS
Parameters: [<server>]

The USERS command returns a list of users logged into the server in a similar format to who(1), rusers(1) and finger(1). Some people may disable this command on their server for security related reasons. If disabled, the correct numeric must be returned to indicate this.

Just to clarify, that's users logged into the server's Operating System, not the IRCd.

Ahh, i see. I just can't see why we would need that in the ircd though.
