TOR Users on QuakeNet

Posted by meeb on Wednesday 30 January 2008

After a prolonged period of disallowing TOR users on QuakeNet due to abuse, we have decided to update our policy and allow TOR users onto the network. Any user connecting to QuakeNet from a TOR exit node will now automatically have their hostmask set to something similar to the following:


Any channel operators experiencing abuse from users connecting from a TOR exit node (evading bans and so on) can ban the entire TOR network by setting (for example) a ban mask similar to:

/MODE #channel +b !@*.tor.quakenet.org

We hope you enjoy the increased anonymity access to QuakeNet from the TOR network provides. This also solves any issues of users who run TOR exit nodes themselves being previously automatically banned from the network.

Please log in to post comments.
ok, well done :)

Looks like QN is opening itself more and more to different types of users. Hope there will come a day when IRC is more attractive than any IM or other shit out there. ;-)

This seems like nice feature, but when I try to connect thru TOR, I get different kinds of messages like "(G-lined (AUTO: You are infected with a trojan, please run anti-virus software. (ID: 875744fb)))", "takeover." and "AUTO: Drone client (ID: c858d1b0)." I managed to successfully connect to quakenet one time thru TOR but It lasted for a little time and I got G-lined again with the message about anti-virus. But still I can connect directly without proxies...

Unfortunately a lot of people that do have trojans try evading their glines with tor, that's why a lot of tor nodes are glined too :(

I love this setup. It's very unique to IRC, and I believe it is a great option to just adding a G-line to all known tor hosts.

Good.. for informations. :-)

Every single tor node I connect to causes g-line for open proxy. I've only managed to do it once.
