README

Some short notes:

The former Hybserv development team has decided to spin off and
focus its energies towards the HYBSERV2 project. Like the name
implies this new version will be even better then that last. If
their is something you would like to see added to HYBSERV2 please
let us know as we are always looking for new ideas.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Per Sidewnder's (Cosine's) request - HYBSERV will no longer be
supported. So if you have some questions or problems, please
*upgrade* first to a version listed in the HYBSERV2 dir.

The latest version is 1.8.0 <------

HybServ was specifically designed to run with hybrid ircd, although it
*should* work with CSr as well.  You may receive the hybrid irc daemon
from ftp.blackened.com in /pub/irc/hybrid. These services (more or less
same code) are currently used by EFNet / DalNet / ICQ / WFNet / HybNet /
EFNow / Openprojects Network.

We can't fix bugs if no one reports them!

The criteria for reporting bugs is somewhat specific. 

1. We need to know exactly how to reproduce the bugs. Use
   #define DEBUG in include/config.h to make sure server
   will produce corefile.

2. If you do not know how to reproduce the bug at will, please
   do the following: #define EXTREMEDEBUG in config.h, which will
   cause the file "hybserv.hubinfo" to be created. If the bug
   occurs again, email to hybserv-bugs@alleged.com  the
   hybserv.hubinfo file, and it will give us a starting point.

#########################################################
# 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 Hybrid 7 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. 

IMPORTANT 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 Hybrid-7 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";
  };
