README

Important note: as it currently stands, Hybserv2 is incompatible with
IRCD Hybrid 8.x as they have decided to be TS3 incompatible. There is some
grunt work needed to make it fully TS6 and I personally don't have any
more time and interest to code for IRC and related to IRC. For me, IRC has
long died, as well as NNTP and other things we Unix kids loved in the
past.

INFO

Hybserv2 is a new and improved version of the now unsupported Hybserv,
sporting new features, bugfixes, and more. It is specifically designed
for Hybrid IRC servers, but may work with others as well. It includes
OperServ, NickServ, ChanServ, MemoServ, StatServ, HelpServ, and Global.
Each of the services can be enabled and disabled as necessary.

Hybserv was specifically designed to run with Hybrid6/7 IRCd, although it
should work with Ratbox IRCd and any other Hybrid-based IRCd. You may
find the Hybrid IRC daemon at
http://ircd-hybrid.com/. These services (more
or less same code) are currently used by several other networks such as
idolNET, BalcanNET, BGNet, BGFree, UniBG, BCNet, GunNet, ShakeIT,
FreeWorld, IRCBG, FreeNode/OPN.

The former Hybserv development team has decided to spin off and focus its
energy towards the Hybserv2 project. Like the name implies, this new
version is even better. If there is something you would like to see added
to Hybserv2, please let us know as we are always looking for fresh ideas.

NOTE: Per Sidewnder's (Cosine's) request - original Hybserv will no longer
be supported. So if you have questions or some problems, please
upgrade first to a recent stable or even to a development version.

Hybserv was first coded by Patrick Alken wnder@underworld.net and is
now maintained by the Hybserv2 Coding Team, unless otherwise mentioned in
the code or the Credits.

DISTRIBUTION

You can get Hybserv2 from:

  1. Hybserv2 home and
    Hybserv2 releases

    NOTE: GitHub copy is always more current than the release, since it is
    working/development version. It is possible to checkout any needed
    release via appropriate tags (for example REL_1_9_5).

INSTALLATION

Please read the INSTALL file. NOW.

RUNNING HYBSERV

Make sure that each hub server you have specified in your config file has
C/N lines for Hybserv matching the password in the first field of the S:
line and the server name specified in the N: line. Also, if you wish to
enable jupes (#define ALLOW_JUPES), you MUST give services an H: line in
ircd.conf.

Configuration examples:

NOTE: Suppose the host name of services is "services.name" with
an ip of 1.2.3.4, and that server accepting the services
has name "server.shomewhere" with ircd class "server" (or
class 1).

Required statements in ircd.conf for Hybrid5/6:

C:1.2.3.4:password:services.name::1
N:1.2.3.4:password:services.name::1
H:*:*:services.name

NOTE: You can leave out H line if you don't want to use server
jupes and G-Lines.

NOTE: We recommend using services on same server that is your
hub, and then you can use 127.0.0.1 as address in C/N lines
(which will give you some performance, since traffic will
go through loop back device).

However in Hybrid7 to accomplish the same you have to put in ircd.conf
following code:

  connect {
    name = "services.name";
    host = "1.2.3.4";
    send_password = "password";
    accept_password = "password";
    compressed = no;
    hub_mask = "*";
    class = "server";
  };

In hybserv.conf configuration should be as follows:

  S:password:hub.server.somewhere:6667
  N:services.name:Hybrid services

When you have compiled Hybserv and edited the necessary files, simply type
./hybserv which should start daemon properly. If it is not in process
list, check hybserv.log which should state reasons of failure.

Then, go on IRC and type: /msg OperServ identify <password>

Assuming OperServ is the OperServNick defined in settings.conf and you
have given yourself a O: line in hybserv.conf. You should be allowed to
give OperServ commands through /msg or DCC CHAT.

For a list of commands do: /msg OperServ help

Most commands may also be done through DCC CHAT, and in fact more commands
are available through DCC CHAT. Simply /dcc chat OperServ to connect, and
.help

I have tried to make Hybserv fully compatible with TCM (linking wise). If
you wish Hybserv to be part of your TCM botnet, read TCM-LINKING for
instructions. If you have no idea what a TCM bot is, don't worry about it
:-)

If you enabled NickServ, ChanServ, MemoServ etc. in config.h, you can get
lists of their commands through /msg *Serv help. NickServ and ChanServ
have several commands that can only be executed by administrators. This
means you must match an O: line (with an "a" flag) in hybserv.conf and be
registered with OperServ to use them. This can be done by typing /msg
OperServ password
, these commands CANNOT be accessed by DCC Chat.

NOTE: If you use Hybrid or Hybrid-compatible IRC daemon, you should enable
Q-lines (quarantined nickname) for services-reserved nicknames
because of obvious security reasons:

  Q:NickServ:This nickname is reserved.
  Q:ChanServ:This nickname is reserved.
  Q:OperServ:This nickname is reserved.

However Q lines changed in Hybrid7. Feel free to copy and paste these
lines:

  resv {
    # The reason must go first
    reason = "This nickname is reserved";
    nick = "NickServ";
    nick = "ChanServ";
    nick = "OperServ";
  };
