|Summary||0003019: DNS configuration options have no point at all|
|Description||The timeout/retry options in unrealircd.conf does not work.|
In my config, I have:
however, in ircd, /dns i shows me:
****** DNS Configuration Information ******
c-ares version: 1.3.0
# of servers: 1
server #1: mydnshere
****** End of DNS Configuration Info ******

||please fix this issue.|
Ehm, this won't be "fixed" in 3.2*.
In fact I'm considering removing (or otherwise: moving) the dns block altogether in 3.3* :P.
||Perhaps worth mentioning why this won't be "fixed" in 3.2*: It never worked in 3.2* and thus if we suddenly make the dns block work, it will break hundreds - if not thousands - of installations that will mysteriously suddenly fail to work. (FYI, set::dns::nameserver is also ignored atm, so making it work causes a... ""funny effect"").|
||well, a better idea would be to remove these options, right now its highly annoying that they are required to be in the config file (or else unreal won't start, giving errors that they are missing), but they have absolutely no purpose at all; at the least, you _should_ remove the requirement of having them in there for 3.2.6; would make a lot more sense, that way there won't be any unrecognized config options, and nothing will break :>|
Fixed in CVS of 32* (.591) and 33* (.2296), part of mass-commit:
- Snomask N: Don't show nickchanges for U-lines, reported by seneces (0002636).
- Fixed set::dns::bind-ip directive seen as duplicate, reported by aegis (0003074).
- set::dns::* block is now no longer mandatory. All info has always been read from
/etc/resolv.conf (*NIX) or the registry (Win32), and the set::dns block is ignored
(except for set::dns::bind-ip, but that's a special case). Suggested by many including
djGrrr to make things slightly more logical (0003019).
- As a consequence of the above, set::dns blocks were removed from doc/example*conf.
- Added two more characters to Catalan charset, reported by rmh (0002995).
- Added set::pingpong-warning [yes|no] which decides whether to send the "** If you are
having problems connecting due to ping timeouts, please type /quote pong .." message
to each client when NOSPOOF is enabled (usually on Win32). The default is NO.
Previously this message was always sent if NOSPOOF was on, which often caused
confusion among users. The message was intended for non-confirming clients, but these
should be fixed by now, and those that were not fixed (self-made bots/etc) did often
not understand the message anyway. Anyway, you can still turn it on ;). (0002680).
