Project is NOT dead

Project was sleeping for few years, but today I have commited to CVS code which synchronizes with bahamut version 1.4.36. This commit also fixes subtle dns bug, moves DNS reverse resolution from to official domain.

Code, as it is in CVS is serving 500 to 1000+ IPv6 clients in production in Aitvaras IRC network ( ), released version works in Azzurra IRC network ( ).... read more

PRE2 release

this release expands the REGEX_BANS (a subsequent release with regex flags and full INET6 prefix bans support will follow) and fixes a nasty crashing bug when an ipv6 clients connects.

enjoy =)

REGEX_BANS now completed

regex bans are in CVS now, but KEEP IN MIND that
this is not a -STABLE release, until i will be absolutely
sure that it doesn`t crash or malfunction.

feedback is really welcome =)

1.4.35 upgrade and more stuff (read this!)

this release contains an upgrade to bahamut 1.4.35, with userbans, regex bans and ssl improvements.
for more details, read the release notes.
keep in mind that userbans support for ipv6 addresses is just preliminar, we treat everything as an host ban. more support is planned, but this update was too important to wait more.
also, regex bans syntax is subject to change, read release notes for more info.... read more

last release

due of the last release of the 1.4 branch of bahamut, this is also the last release of bahamut-inet6. currently i have no plans to involve into 1.6-inet6, DAL has said that they will do this job.

by the way, this patch will remain available for everyone wants to download it, and i`ll keep it updated with every additional patch DAL releases.

thanks to everyone made this possible :)

release inet6-1.0 contained a crashing bug, cause i forgot a ++ in parse.c . . sorry . . also i forgot the IRCERR_SSL definition in struct.h and the AS prototypes in msg.h . . that caused SSL and /as to not work. now is all ok, i`ve hidden the 1.0 release from filelist because of this bug.

things like this won`t happen in future, now i`m not so busy like i`ve been in the past month.

thanks to all who support me.... read more

SSL notes

Solaris do not provide in default installations a random number generator (/dev/urandom and /dev/random), generator on which openssl relies. so i've recently modifyied ./config to inform the user of this problem and point him to some locations where he can find more explanations. also now ./config sees if you have an EGD installed o an $HOME/.rnd or $(pwd)/.rnd file, and, if present, passes it to the -rand openssl's option.... read more

SSL code released

Now bahamut supports encrypted client->server connections using SSL sockets and the OpenSSL library (


enjoy . .

i`ve recently realized an SSL patch for bahamut, which is running on i don`t know if to make it public, cause i don`t know if it interests anyone. i`m posting this message to fetch some opinions from the users who read this page: if someone needs it, i will make it available.

let me know.

--- vejeta__ is now known as vjt

I think that the project is -stable, i`ve reviewed the code many and many times, it`s time to release it. I`ve sent a mail to in order for them to review this project. if they will like it, it will become official, after some modifications of course . . i didn`t even open one time et al . . so maybe this patch needs some more integration into the actual source tree but . . it *works* :).

bugs fixed, and a note for users of older releases.

several bugs fixed, new version is in the CVS tree. thanks to monas who pointed out these bugs ! soon i will make a 0.9.1 release, so users can continue testing.

for users of 0.9: there is a possible SEGV in the server, you are invited to checkout the latest sources and rebuild your daemon. thanx.

new release !

i`ve released the new version of the patch, i fixed the /connect bug and the v4->v6 link bug, now it all works fine and we have even upgraded our azzurranet server with the new code, so i think we are going -stable. thanx also to Virgo from for his test work, he is also running this software on his net, kewl ! :)

keep on refreshing this page and the cvs, more news may be coming ;)

little bug fixed

i fixed a little bug in connect_inet() where the value that inet_pton() returned was mis-interpreted. the new release is available via CVS. i have no plans to make a new release until i fix all the /connect problems, `cause i also want to implement /connect`s to ipv4 and ipv6 servers both, without requiring the OS do the translation [::ffff:i.p.v.4]. in technical words, i have to open an INET6 socket versus ipv6 servers, and an INET4 socket versus ipv4 servers. now the socket is only v4. this is a really busy period, i hope [as i previously said] for the end of the month to implement all these features.... read more

hello ! [first news]

this is the first day this project will be hosted on sourceforge, and i`ve done the first CVS commit. i`ll now make an home page, add some developers, etc :)

for now the distribution is considered in BETA state, cause i`ve not thoroughly tested, so if you want, you can test it yourself and send me a bugreport !

bye ! :)
