#203 closed Enhancement (Fixed)

Nick identification isn't always with Nickserv

Reported by: wac+colloquy@… Owned by: akempgen
Component: Chat Core (IRC) Version: 2.1 (Mac)
Severity: Minor Keywords: undernet nickserv identify login


[2732] changed things to send to Nickserv, but the process for doing that varies depending on the IRC network. On Undernet the process is PRIVMSG X@… :login <userid> <password>, and then optionally a usermode +x to set cloaking. Perhaps this could be made a little more flexible somehow, before things get set in stone.

Colloquy has only recognized NickServ? long before [2732]. NickServ? is by far the most popular service, but we realize it isn't the only one. The solution to this can get rather complex. Something to think on. I know sorcerynet uses a different nick service too.

PTNet network uses nickserv, but the default command for identifying "PRIVMSG Nickserv identify password" does not work, it should be /nickserv identify password or /quote nickserv identify password , so Colloquy should definitely be more flexible for password auth. Like, for instance, have some predefined modes for each server in its list, but allow the user to set the string that the server will recognize as password authentication.

  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

QuakeNet? doesnt have a NickServ? service, but it does have user authorization with the Q bot.
The command is "/MSG AUTH <username> <password>" and before joining any chans you usually hide your hostmask with "/MODE <nickname> +x".

Maybe the Get Info on a connection could have a pulldown menu "This Network uses the NickServ/Undernet/Quakenet/?... auth service" above the username/password fields?

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

Mostly fixed in [4177]. Quakenet, Undernet and Gamesurge should all auto identify now when using the nickname/password fields.
