#1429 new Defect

when connecting to an irc proxy (bouncer) with multiple network connects, colloquy gets confused

Reported by: h1ro Owned by: timothy
Component: Colloquy (Mac) Version: 2.2 (Mac)
Severity: Normal Keywords: bug proxy multiple networks

Description

when running an irc proxy (bouncer) which is connected to multiple networks - irc.freenode.net, irc.mintirc.net for example and with auto connect (in the proxy) to channels in those networks, when reconnected with mobile colloquy (or desktop colloquy) the channels get mixed up between the two networks.

this does not happen when using another client, bitchx, irssi or linkinus for example.

this is when using either the same *or* different nicks and connection specs (both in the proxy and client)

What bouncer are you using?

Replying to NoOneButMe:

What bouncer are you using?

i've tried multiple ones - dircproxy, bip, ctrlproxy

the proxies connect to the multiple networks and respective channels fine. and i can connect to the proxy fine in say Linkinus. however when i set up two network connections in mobile colloquy (or desktop colloquy) the clients seem to forget which channel belongs with which network.

the only way i have been able to get it to work is to run multiple instances of the proxy on different ports with different usernames, the mobile colloquy remembers which channel belongs where. but i'd really rather not do that ;)

let me know if i can provide anymore information

a nasty workaround occurred when i read this ticket:

http://colloquy.info/project/ticket/550

i set up some subdomains on my server for each irc network:

freenode.example.com
arstechnica.example.com

then colloquy (desktop and mobile) doesn't get confused. but this is a bit of a nasty hack! ;)
it would be great if colloquy could deal with this without having to set up subdomains

Can you attach screen shots (desktop is fine) of the before and after mixup? I can not sure I follow how things get mixed up.

comment:5 Changed 10 years ago by h1ro

sure - and maybe a better explanation

desired layout:
network 1: channel 1
network 2: channel 2, channel 3

mixup
network 1: channel 1
network 2: channel 1, channel 2, channel 3

(even though channel 1 doesn't exist on network 2)
does that make more sense?

Is there still no real fix for this?
