Ki BNCs

Postby disco on Fri Apr 11, 2008 10:33 pm

We now have the opportunity to offer IRC bouncers to Ki members (and possibly friends of the community too) completely free of charge!

What is it?

Normally when you join an IRC server you're only present for as long as your IRC client is open, so if somebody wants to get a message to you and you haven't got IRC turned on, they can't.
A BNC, or bouncer, is a "bot" that sits on IRC all the time, acting as a ghost while you aren't connected to it and saving any PMs so that you can read them later.


How do I get one?

Just ask! We'd be more than happy to provide you with one, so sling me a PM, post here, email, speak on vent, whatever is good for you.


How do I use it?

This part assumes you're using IRC as your IRC client to keep things simple

Once it's set up, you'll get the following details:

BNC server address: bnc.ki-css.com
BNC server port: 9020
Username: Your choice
Password: Your choice

Setup:
1. Turn on your IDENT - Press ALT+O to open the options dialog, expand the connect section and make sure IDENT is enabled.

2. Set your IDENT - Make sure that the IDENT user ID is set to your BNC username

3. Add a new server - Press ALT+E to open the select server menu. Press the "Add button". Set the description to something like "Ki BNC"
Set the IRC server to your BNC server address
Set the port to your BNC server port
Leave the group blank
Set the Password to your BNC server password
Press Add and then select your new BNC server and press Select

4. Configure your nickname and email - Select the "Connect" tree item on the left at the top.
Set your Full name to whatever you like, this is unimportant and is only seen in "whois" queries
Set your Email address to your BNC username
Set your Nickname to your display name that will be shown while you're online
Set an alternative nickname if you wish, this is only used if your preferred nickname is taken.

5. Configure your nickname that will be shown while you're away - Type in any channel window: /sbnc set awaynick disco`away.
Obviously replace disco`away with your away nickname of choice. Beware that a lot of characters are restricted from IRC usernames. Specifically: . , * & ^ % £ " ! ( ) / @ # ~ ; : ? { } + =
Common characters used in away nicknames are: - _ [ ] ` | \

What can I do with it now?

To configure your BNC, you can use either /sbnc <command> or /msg -sbnc <command>

A good one to start with is /sbnc help

You can now view and change your options with the BNC control panel:

lol

I've decided to go for the "Make everyone BNCs even if they don't use them" approach, similar to what I suspect Froody have done. Unfortunately I've now hit the 5 users per IP limit, and will have to wait a day or two for quakenet to respond to my request for a "trust" (which allows more connections).

But, we're getting there... :]
