This system has been created for use by reputable clans and organizations
based here on EnterTheGame. What this new system does is changes your hostmask
on the network, so that nobody can see your real ip/hostmask. For example such a
vhost would look like this: yourclan.on.EnterTheGame.Com where your clan
represents your clan name.
While our system will help protect yourself while on EnterTheGame, we are
going to be straight up about it; no type of system like this will fully protect
you. It can protect people from getting your real IP on IRC which is a big step
and a big protection. This is only part of a comprehensive way that you can
better protect yourself. Other options you still have to protect yourself would
be for example some sort of firewall. Don`t DCC Chat or DCC Send with them (the
people you don`t trust). They will see your real IP despite the vhost, as DCC
creates a Direct Connection between you and them.
We recommend using this VHost
Script, and also using some of the other things listed below.
Other things to also help keep yourself protected
while using the internet include using an anti-virus program such as Norton
AntiVirus, McAfee VirusScan, PC-illin, and Panda Antivirus. Also using a
firewall program such as ZoneAlarm, BlackICE, and Sygate to name a few. These
methods will help you in efforts against being sent malicious files that may
help others gain access to your computers, as well as help in blocking Denial of
Service attacks against yourself.
The way the vhosts work within our system as a
channel admin, is you can add the vhost to auto-ops in your channel and when
your clan members authenticate to it and join the channel, they will be opped.
Likewise, ChanServ will also match them on their real IPs; if you have matching
hosts in the auto-op list for that.
Your real IP however, does still need to stay on
the channelís admin list for security reasons. For example if just the vhost:
*!*@vhost.on.enterthegame.com was on the admin list, it creates an obvious
security hole where anyone on that vhost would have access.
You are responsible for who uses this vhost.
There is not to be any abuse while on this vhost, or you will be subject to
revoking of the vhost privilege.
HOW TO not join any channels before you log in
with ChanServ`s vhost system!
First, make sure the 2 settings below are exactly
like the ones below ;)
Just load it after extracting it into your mirc
dir with //load -rs etgvhost.ini
when it asks to run initialization commands else it wont work.
After this the following menu appears in the mirc
menubar, should be self explanatory. Click the picture below for a fullsize
HOW TO add channels for auto join:
Hit alt-a, go to the view menu and select
etgvhost.ini, then just look at the bottom like the example below. Click the
