|Fixed in Version||3.2.9-RC1|
|Summary||0003884: ./Config could be more verbose with explaining the questions|
|Description||./Config includes a question about an 'anti-spoofing' option, but this option hardly explains itself|
Rather than being about anti-spoofing, it blocks http get/post proxies.
|Steps To Reproduce||Asked during every ./Config|
|Additional Information||Just happened to find a copy of UnrealIRCd on a server with anti-spoof disabled without any reason.|
When asking the admin, he told me he turned it off because he had trouble connecting and turned it off during solving this problem.
We could add some hints to this very question, e.g. that it effectively blocks HTTP GET/POST proxies by using a PING cookie.
Nobody would guess the meaning of this option just by the naming of 'anti-spoofing'.
IMHO Its description should encourage people to keep it enabled.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|3rd party modules|
||I've tried suggesting the terminology "ping cookie" to inspircd's team, too, for having a common terminology on that feature - derived from the idea of tcp cookies ported onto osi level 8.|
||It appears to me that nospoof is still disabled by default in CVS|
I eh didn't notice this bugreport (or forgot about it), until ohnobinki mentioned it today.
I think a big majority of the people will have it turned on now.
