Limit chhanels user is allowed in?

Post by kposborn » Sun Jan 18, 2009 10:25 pm

I run a small server with a little more than 200 members. Most of the communities in it are linked in some way, including the administrators that hop on with them.
One of the communities has an unruly administrator that doesn't really belong in power on an IRC server. He was originally banned from the server, then from specific rooms, because of his behavior, but it makes our lives (other administrators of the website) much easier with him around in only our channels. because as administrator, we're sort of required to take his opinion into consideration.

I was wondering if it is possible to actually limit the channels that the user can go into. A whitelist of sorts, which denies him the ability to access anything but specific channels (#admin, #mod, etc, besides #main-channel)

We were looking for an easy way to do this without setting bans in all the channels he's not allowed in, as it would just make it easier to do.

We're running Unreal3.2.7, with the latest version of Anope Services, 1.8.0

The best way I believe to achieve what you want is using one deny channel block for the mask * then an allow channel block for each channel you want to allow users in.

If you have more then one server it may be best to include these blocks in a remotely included config instead using UnrealIRCd's remote includes feature.

Jobe, he wants this to only affect 1 user.

Oh, he deserves it, and it's generally for his own well being. Members don't like him much, and he easily gets power hungry (he even gets us to try to administrate the channel for him). We had to change the channel password so he couldn't use it remotely. But we require him in our admin and staff channels to make a decision, and he's not a terribly bad guy.

Thanks all for the support, but I'm also not able to find any way to do such a thing. Likely, he'll just stay banned from the main channels, and we'll enforce the rule ourselves.

In my humble opinion, he's not worth having an O:Line and you should really (re)consider removing his O:line. If your users don't like him, I'm sure they've got their reasons (power hungry as stated and users generally doesn't like that).

Just my two cents.
