Summary0005735: Allow STS policy to be used only on specific ports

I noticed today, that when someone uses STS policy and there are other ports opened the ircd automatically uses STS on these ports, example, i have set ZNC on port 6555 so when i try from the client to connect on 6555 the IRCD automatically uses STS to +6697.

So in this case i have to disable STS on the client side (mirc doesn't support it) to connect on 6555 port.

So i request one of the followings additions (probably there should be a better one but i cannot think it now).

1) A set option to skip some ports from STS policy.


set {
    ssl {
        sts-policy {
            skip-ports: "6555 5510";
            port 6697;
            duration 180d;

2) A listen block option to be able to use STS policy on that port.

listen {
    ip *;
    port 6667;
        options { allow-sts; }

- Thanks!

I don't understand, if a client does not support STS it simply will ignore STS and keep going on using the same connection (it won't reconnect).
You are saying you needed something special for ZNC? or for mIRC? Some kind of interoperability issue?
Perhaps you can elaborate on why you need this :)

Sure, closing then :)

Also, you make a lot of useful bug reports, it's no problem at all if once in a while one or two of them are wrong :)
