Ident based i-lines

Post by hifi »

I'm not sure has anybody made topic of this. I made some quick searches and found none, so here it goes.

We would like to add allow lines to allow 1 connection per working ident, so nobody on any host with working identd can't connect more than once to server. And then we have whis *@* allow line with only 3 connection per ip (matches if there is no working identd).

I don't know is this possible with current unreal or is there any modules to do this.

Solution for this could be option to allow like "connections-per-match" so if ip or host line matches it limits connections.

Like in, ident in specific host.

Example situation:

/* Working identd
me@host1, 1 connection
you@host1. 1 connection
he@host1, 1 connection
she@host1, 1 connection
dad@host1, 1 connection
mom@host1, 1 connection

/* Non-working identd
~me@host2, 1of3 connections
~you@host2. 2of3 connections
~he@host2, 3of3 connections

And all thease 9 people could irc, but host2 can't connect anymore clients and host1 can but 1 per working ident.

I see .. however the allow block doesn't work quite that way. I don't see why dissallowing multiple usernames when your allowing from multiple hosts would be beneficial in anyway. However, you can refer to the doc/unreal32docs.html specificlly the allow block section to learn what Unreal *can* do.
