BitchX ipv6 ssl efnet connect

Postby pmcpcm » Mon Jun 22, 2015 1:31 am

I need some instruction on how to get BitchX configured for connecting to efnets ssl ipv6 servers.
I tried /server irc.paraphyics.net,6697 -h "hostname". It keeps closing the connection on the remote end, and connecting to eversible.net.
I haven't found much information on configuring BitchX properly for SSL ipv6.

While I am not familiar with BitchX (you will have to read the docs for that), I see several problems right off the bat:

1: irc.paraphysics.net (note correct spelling) hasn't been a part of EFnet for quite some time.
2: There is a list of IPv6 servers at http://www.efnet.org/?module=servers and eversible isn't one of those supporting IPv6.
3: Not sure why you are specifying port 6697 but support the comma delimiter isn't supported.
4: The -h switch isn't supported by EFnet.

The man pages are unclear as to how you assign a host to the client. Any idea what a common config file looks like for bitchx with efnet ipv6 servers (ssl)

i haven't used bitchx in some years, but i would assume it's smart enough that if you specify an ipv6 server (eg - irc.ipv6.efnet.org) it will use the correct ipv6 interface. if you have multiple ipv6 ips on your client machine, -h works via command line (eg - BitchX -h mylocahost mynickname irc.ipv6.efnet.org), but i do not know if it works via /server. if i recall there is a /set you can use to set your local hostname. most efnet servers use port 9999 for SSL, use the -ssl flag on your /server to specify the connection should use ssl.

Yeah, I thought this too but it doesn't, for me at least. pmcpcm do you know how to change it?
