SSL test

Postby Beige » Fri Dec 07, 2007 2:06 pm

We're beta testing an SSL gateway on port 9999, so if you're interested in giving it a shot (if only to let us know if your client software connects ok or not) we're grateful for any and all feedback!

Works great for me. Using mIRC 6.31 (Win XP Pro) and XChat 2.8.4 (Kubuntu Linux 7.10).

And thanks for this too. :D
I had been waiting for SSL support on Efnet. My work's ISP blocks irc packets because of some virus scare, so I hadn't been able to get on. But since the packets are encrypted, I can finally get on with mIRC and stop using cgi-irc.

I was able to connect with BitchX-1.1-final+.. The I:line was already full though, so I couldn't stay connected..

[eversible] *** SSL handshake successful
[eversible] *** Processing connection to
[eversible] *** Looking up your hostname...
[eversible] *** Checking Ident
[eversible] *** Couldn't look up your hostname
[eversible] *** No Ident response
��� Closing Link: (Too many host connections (global))

Any reason why it was unable to lookup my hostname and receive an ident response? My IP address resolves properly to a host forwarded to it, and I do have a working identd.
