    How do I set up the chat room so that the users IP (ISP) information isn’t displayed when they enter the chat room or when someone clicks on the Info button?

    User’s IP addresses are already masked by the server and only IRC operators are able to see the actuall address.

    Dave,

    A little clarification if you would. I am new to this and not familiar with all this stuff. Who are the “IRC operators” that can see the actual address? Are they restricted by any kind of Privacy Policy? (yes, I have read yours).

    When you said the IP addresses are masked. I am presuming you mean that is the information that starts with [email protected] followed by goobledy gook followed by the ISP and the goobledy gook part is the masked part?

    Last but not least.. while the help system for chanserv and nickserv is great, is this information availabe in another form somewhere? Hard to figure out at times where you need to go to find out what you need to know!

    Thanks!

    The “IRC Operators” include myself and others that I trust. (8 of us total)

    How do you mean restricted? Do you mean do they share your IP address with others? No, they do not. If there is talk of an IP address it’s between us for server management.

    The masking of the IP addresses depends on server version but without looking I believe we are currently only masking ISP port numbers. This provides privacy but still allows for room owners to ban users from their rooms.

    Some major changes will be coming soon as far as chanserv/nickserv/memoserv/botserv. I still have not decided on anything 100% but I need to make such services more managable for myself and other operators. What I need is to have such services using a MySQL backend instead of the flat file database they currently use.

    If I get some time after Christmass I’ll look into putting such information into a PDF file or perhaps some sort of dedicated web based FAQ management setup with it’s own database so it can be searched. Any ideas that you think would help are welcomed for suggestion.
