How to create an AuthAccount on IRC

  • announcement_gladiatus_ar_142fcfa568b4f81bbc60b5a563544a14.png

    Authaccounts are needed if:

    * you want to hide your IP Address

    * you want to have a channel created for your Alliance

    * you want to join a channel that can only be joined by "authed" users

    * you want to be added with access to a channel

    So how to get one?

    There are basically two ways to create an Authaccount ...

    1. Use the Web-based Formular

    The IRC staff has designed a website where you can create an AuthAccount:

    Just insert the data there and make sure it is the correct E-Mail Address

    because you will need the E-Mail they sent you to activate the AuthAccount.

    2. Use an IRC Command

    On IRC you can create an account by typing the following:

    /msg Authserv register AccountNameHere PasswordHere EmailHere

    Enter it in any IRC window, although I recommend using the Status window if

    you can find it.

    3. Now you have to activate the Account

    Due to security measurements you will have to activate the account by using the

    AuthCookie that was sent to you by E-Mail. When using the Cookie your hostmask

    will be added to your account.

    The Cookie looks like this:

    /msg COOKIE AuthAccount HskDLensD

    Enter it in any IRC window, although I recommend using the Status window if

    you can find it.

    Once you did that you will get a message from AuthServ telling you that you

    are now successfully logged in.

    If you use more than one connection (different providers) to access IRC you

    will need to add your other hostmasks as well. You can add more hostmasks

    using this command:

    /msg AuthServ ADDMASK user@host

    Note the hostmask always looks like either user@host or ~user@host

    You can find it out by whois'ing yourself:

    /whois YourNickHere

    Could look like this:


    If your IP is dynamic (meaning it changes) you need to adapt the hostmask

    adding astersisk to the places where it is dynamic. In the above case you'd

    end up with:



    However your user (also called ident) might change if you use a different

    client, etc., so I would use:

    /msg AuthServ ADDMASK *@*

    4. Hiding your host / IP Address

    In order to hide it automatically whenever logging in, use:

    /msg AuthServ set autohide 1

    If you just want to hide it once use:

    /mode YourNickHere +x

    That's it!
