SSL test

We're beta testing an SSL gateway on irc.eversible.com port 9999, so if you're interested in giving it a shot (if only to let us know if your client software connects ok or not) we're grateful for any and all feedback!

Fascinating as spamtrap is, please return to the topic: suggestions to improve EFnet. Hey Garion! Not to distract from discussing hypothetical improvements, but it seems like a lot of users haven't been aware of the effective anti-spam service we've had in place for years.. So if there's one immedi...

Typically there isn't much opers can do in such cases, but drop me (Beige) or some other operator a message on IRC and we'll take a look at it.

Topic: Can't Connect To Any Efnet Servers!
Replies: 6
Views: 4924

Although irc.efnet.us will resolve to a random EFnet server, it's possible your operating system and client are caching the DNS lookup in such a way where it's actually trying to connect to the same server continuously. Hence netmunky's suggestion of connecting to a specific server is a good one - t...

Typically a cached ban should only last for 5 minutes, and I believe prison.net is configured this way as well. Is it possible there's another client (e.g. a backgrounded process such as a bot or some other user on the same machine using the same IP) trying to reconnect constantly and thus keeping t...

The "username" setting varies from one IRC client to another. For example with mIRC, whatever you enter in the "E-mail Address" window before the @ becomes your username on IRC (the mIRC Options window). (Note: The above is true if there is no accessible identd server on your computer, but this is a...

Wouldn't a route to a hub in the US be faster in practice as well as in theory? I guess routing is a different matter than politics, though :-)

Re: SSL?

My dorm connection will not allow me to connect to networks without SSL. It takes a long time and luck on whether I can connect regularly. What you may be experiencing is simply a side effect of (due to the dorm networking setup) inaccessible identd. On connect, EFnet servers will try to connect to...

Re: SSL?

Hi, I was wondering if there were SSL ports. If so, which server? Thanks. blackLion Sadly, no EFnet server offers SSL presently. This could well change in the future, though, as CPU power keeps getting cheaper. I must stress, however, that if you're genuinely concerned with privacy (say, for exampl...

Regarding Proxy Blacklist Bans (of general interest)

As of late, there have been a few posts (and a similar amount of e-mails at irc@ e-mail addresses) regarding proxy blacklist bans. It has been my observation that of all the blacklist bans set, 10-15% of the hits appear to be false positives (i.e. computers that evidently have no proxies or backdoor...
