Shell providers - note change to rules
A new addition to the QuakeNet Server rules defines a requirement which concerns shell providers which have clients QuakeNet. This rule does not affect any other user groups, so don't worry.
As the rules have dictated for a long time now, running more than five clients of any kind per ip requires an agreement with QuakeNet, via an administrator/operator on IRC, or through e-mail. In the future, such agreements will NOT be granted to shell providers of any kind, who do not run identd(Ident daemon). The ident reply must be unique to all users, and may not be user modifiable. This requirement is designed to help us, and the shell providers, when reacting to abuse cases.
We'd appreciate if the word could be passed to all shell providers that you know of, that have users on QuakeNet. However, do NOT contact us on how to activate identd - if you're running a shell company, you should know how to do this.
