Summary0004559: Linking
Descriptionit currently allows you to link two networks with the same name, on a testing net we linked irc.*.*
and named services irc.*.* (totally accidently tho)

the link was allowed. it didn't cause major bugs locally but third party servers wanting to /rehash experienced issues
Steps To ReproduceSet up a "services" using the same link name, create a link block with appropriate info on both sides, server merges.
TagsNo tags attached.

I'm having some difficulty reproducing this. My link gets rejected as it should.

Are all 3 servers on UnrealIRCd 4? Or some not? If not, could you specify which?
I tried one or two combinations but no luck. Probably something simple I'm overlooking...

Any type of server that does not require a ID

such as services, I know it sounds minor but it's easy to make a mistake when you're doing multiple configs

The issue occurred when one of my clients accidently named "services.theirserver" to "irc.theirserver" it allowed the link.

Oh ok I got it, you need to link to the server with the same name (not to another server on the net). And indeed not use a SID (or not the same anyway), as a SID collision would already be handled earlier.

Yeah it's minor but it's silly & confusing. Fixed. Thanks for the report!

[unreal40 f7dd3ce] Fix minor linking bug which permitted a server to link in which used me::name, IF you had a link block for it. Reported by vNode1 (0004559).
