Post by tolkien »

-bot- I don't recognize you from that host.
-bot- Either you are using someone else's nickname or you need to type: /MSG bot IDENT (password)

maybe u try with:

/MSG bot IDENT <password> <Handle>


join in partyline via telnet, and change ur hostnames.
first remove ur old host, and add u new host.

most likely you have disabled this function from within the shell... more accurately, you have failed to enable this function. go to your shell, do a search for 'ident', and un-comment this line and restart your bot. this will allow you to use the IDENT command 8)

You could enable/use the addhost/ident msg commands, you could add "better" (wider) and/or more hostmasks that better suits the host(s) you use, you could telnet to your bot and manually add new hostmasks using the .+host dcc-partyline command...

(As already suggested by Nor7on and YooHoo)
