Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Changes to the AmigaWorld.NET IRC Network
   posted by sibbi on 26-Apr-2012 18:47:51 (1956 reads)
Hello everybody,

Due to a server crash on one of the AmigaWorld.NET IRC servers we've been without channel services such as NickServ and ChanServ for a good while now.

Attempts have been made to retrieve the old database but they have so far been unsuccessful and we've decided to move ahead with a new and fresh nick and channel database, instead of waiting any longer.

Unfortunately this means that even if you have previously registered your IRC nick or channel, you'll have to do so again.

At the moment both the old and the new network are running in parallel. To visit the new network, you need to go to port 5555 on irc.amigaworld.net, while the old network is still listening on the default (6667) port.

I'd like to ask everyone that has a registered nickname to go to irc.amigaworld.net port 5555 and register with NickServ there, and any channels with ChanServ. Be aware that to add users to ChanServ they need to be already registered with NickServ.

On May 1st, I will change the default port to go to the new network, and we'll migrate over there, and turn off the old network.

We will try to keep downtime off the IRC services to a minimum during these changes, we appreciate your patience.

EDIT: The change has been performed on the AmigaWorld.NET main server and the SE server, I'm waiting for the change on the NO (Polarboing) server, hopefully that will happen soon, until then, use NO.AmigaWorld.net port 5555 or SE/DE.amigaworld.net port 6667

Kind regards,
Sibbi

I have never understood or know how to do the whole registering thing mentioned in this thread.

I don't IRC much but have been since getting into Amiga.

How do I register and why do I need to do it?

Is it so no one else uses the name you like to use?

@amigasociety

The only point of registering is to make sure no one else uses your IRC nickname. If you don't use IRC, there is no point in registering, and even if you do IRC - if you aren't worried about your nick, you don't even need to register it.

This is just a reminder for people who do IRC and care about their nick to go and re-register on the new network now before we migrate to the new network.

You register by sending a private msg to the nickserv service on the network, you can find out the exact syntax by provoking the built in help function, by issuing /msg nickserv help register

@tj

IRC does seem to be a lot more in focus on Amiga platforms these days than for instance Mac/windows indeed.

I remember how everyone at school kept calling it mIRC and thats what they thought the name was ...


@sibbi

So, Nico is back?

WookieChat seems to have a problem connecting to any AmigaWorkd irc server now, AmIRC connects ok, so far.

It should not.

Use no.amigaworld.net until May 1.

You might have used the generic irc.amigaworld.net, which, as you may remember from a prior post by Sibbi, can choose de.amigaworld.net, which might be your problem. I've seen the same failure to connect.
Regardless, as Sibbi says, wait until May 1 and then we can see if there are any issues to tackle.

Connection problem for 2 days, now Wookie is working with AmigaWorldNet again. I was able to connect to the other servers I use, so I wanted to ask if it was a problem for others. I've registered on the new server, so time will tell.

oops, meant this tongo in amigaforever r2 topic

Neat! I'd ordered the first 2012 a couple weeks ago. Got Amiga Forever installed, but am still fighting with teh C64 forever install. It seemed to finish itself, but on running said I needed some newer DirectX thing from Microsoft. (I'm on Win7 Home Premium 64bit) That downloaded but failed to install, something about a required cabinet file not being trusted, check security is valid and Cryptographic Services are enabled, whatever that means. No idea, so for hte moment the C64 part is a waste of money. :( I assume that I cannot do an update to R2 until I can run the thing to see if they corrected something.

@thread

If you are using irc and notice missing people, that's because the migration has occurred.

Note edited text in news:

EDIT: The change has been performed on the AmigaWorld.NET main server, I'm waiting for the change on the two other servers in the network, hopefully that will happen soon.


To reach the new server, this short-term advice from Sibbi:

Use: de.amigaworld.net
Port: 6667 or 5555

These 2 dont work for me. I use port 5555. Wookiechat just waits forever after identify. Only thing to do is to reboot or remove wookie with scout.

se2.amigaworld.net
irc.amigaworld.net

However this one worked :)

de.amigaworld.net

EDIT: Today not even de.amigaworld.net works. Blocks my system

Well it seemd to be working fo rme. At least the other night I could connect. But tonight I noticed my name didn't have a "light" next to it so re-registred again. It then said "This nickname is registered." SI I used the identity command but the error now comes up everytime!

Well, I'm having issues now where, when I connect with my regular IRC client (x-chat), by way of irc.amigaworld.net and I arrive in #amigaworld channel, there's only 4 or 5 other people in there at all. I seem to have been connected to se.amigaworld.net for this session.

On the other hand, connecting to the IRC via the web-based interface, set to the default Germany server, I arrive in #amigaworld channel and there's a buncha people in there.

What's up with that? oO

My understanding is that the entire transition over from the old IRC server to the new one was supposed to have taken place months ago, presumably with the old one being turned off, so why am I now showing up in a ghost-town copy of the #amigaworld irc channel? I see that we were supposed to temporarily set the port to 5555 instead of 6667, but it also sounds like the 6667 port was later going to point also to the new server (i.e. that setting it to the 5555 port was no longer needed), am I misinterpreting something here, and we ARE still supposed to (ONLY) be using the 5555 port?
