Open Proxy

Postby ertyu » Wed Aug 06, 2008 5:59 pm

I sporadically get banned with the following:
Banned Temporary K-line 1440 min. - Open Proxy found on your IP x.x.x.x. Please check your system and fix it.

It's quite sporadic, never at connect time. I run a private IRC server on a different network on the same IP, I assume that is what it is complaining about. How can I avoid these erroneous bans?

we'll need a bit more information if we're to try to help you

ie - what is your IP, and what is the server scanning your IP as an open proxy

Connected to irc.igs.ca and irc.choopa.ca of late as far as I can remember.
I don't know which server is actually doing the scan and triggering the ban though.

IP 24.78.45.129

both igs and choopa proxy scans get listed in efnetrbl, and i don't see that ip listed anywhere in our logs or database.

are there multiple users on this IP?

It just happened again, about 2 hours after connecting:

You are banned from this server- Temporary K-line 1440 min. - Open Proxy found on your IP 24.78.45.129 . Please check your system and fix it. (2008/8/7 12.31)

it looks like dksBOPM is to blame

[2008.08.07 12:31:00] dksBOPM!bopm@services.dks.ca.bopm{irc.dks.ca} added temporary 1440 min. K-Line
for [*@24.78.45.129] [Open Proxy found on your IP 24.78.45.129 . Please check your system and fix it.]

most likely a misconfigured target_string finding your ircd

i've sent contact information to the administrators of dks and the contacts i have for their bopm, but no response of yet.

if you have the ip of the scanner, i would just filter it on your firewall for now. it should at least keep them from misidentifying you.

Doesn't seem like it's fixed as it just happened again.
