Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 52152
encrypted usernames contain invalid characters
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:05 EDT
I'm guessing at the bug. The problem is that with the new pindentd that
returns encrypted usernames, it sometimes returns names that IRC servers
will not accept.
Servers that complain:
LinuxNet (ask around the office; someone will know the server)
Steps to reproduce:
Try to open IRC sessions to one of the listed servers and wait. The servers
may reject you because of a bad username from ident. If not, close and try
It's an error of the server to make assumptions on the nature of the reply. You
can turn the encryption of in /etc/identd.conf if you wish.
