QUOTE PONG

Postby ed4becky » Wed Mar 17, 2010 12:04 pm

I am new to IRC, and use PIDGIN as my client.

Can anyone tell me what this means:

(7:57:38 AM) irc.umich.edu: (notice) To complete your connection to this server, type "/QUOTE PONG :cookie", where cookie is the following ascii.

There is no ascii indicated, and I try /quote pong :cookie to no avail.

i believe pidgin hides most server messages from the user. irc.umich.edu uses an anti-drone patch that asks non-ident users to enter the text from something like:

Code: Select all

 _            _   
| |_ ___  ___| |_
| __/ _ \/ __| __|
| ||  __/\__ \ |_
 \__\___||___/\__|


you can either configure a working ident, use a different irc client that will let you see the cookie, or try another irc server that does not require you to enter a cookie

Everyone else must have an X.509 certificate.
