quakenet secure auth script for xchat

r0bert was so kind to package my python script which I use for secure challenge auth on the QuakeNet IRC-Chat. For the new authentication mechanisms for the new Q-Bot I had to do some adaptations which I shared with him. From my point of view there is nothing really special in this script, it’s just a good helper.

You may go and grab it on the link below. Personally I would be happy not to be bothered with too many bugs, since this guy was not really good tested. It just works “as is” for me. :)


Here is the according content from the README file:

This script provides automated authentification with Quakenet’s new (as of 22.03.2008) Q service for the free, graphical IRC client XChat.
Get it at http://www.xchat.org
QuakeNet’s website is http://www.quakenet.org

The Script makes use of the (new) challengeauth function, so the user’s
auth-password will only be submitted in encrypted form.
After having auth’ed with Q, user-modes will be set (e.g. +x) and
predefined channels will be joined.

Fill out the lines beginning with auth_nicks, auth_passes, channels and
modes at the beginning of the script and place it into your user’s
XChat directory, e.g. /home/username/.xchat2 – the script will be loaded
when XChat starts.

The script is released and licensed under the terms of the
GNU GPL Version 3.

If you like this thing, maybe I can give you additionally a hint to my sourceforge project on bayesian filtering for IRC. (I know that this needs an update.)

    1. Hi Hokai,

      es scheint, als habe ich es gelöscht. Auf meiner Festplatte finde ich es leider auch nicht mehr in dem Zustand, in dem ich das damals hochgeladen hatte. Bei Bedarf kann ich aber noch mal eine Version zusammenstellen.
