when using sbnc i noticed that it does resolve the dns of the ip.
because of that my client always gets the real ip of the connection and then i don't have to change the ip for dcc anymore this could be used in the listclients output of *status or the showsocks command of the schat module.

would be nice of someone would be able to implement that

    If i connect through znc to an ircd, raw 001 and nick!ident@host contain the hostname of the host running znc.
    Now if the client uses dcc and bouncedccs is off it doesnt know of its real IP and thus uses a wrong one.

    I implemented some stuff (tm) so that the client receives its own IP on the first channel joins so that it knows its real ip:
    http://svn.kuja.in/viewvc.cgi/znc?view=rev&revision=938

    The problem is that some clients (at least kvirc) want a hostname and not an IP as that argument and because its currently possible with Csocket to get the rdns entry of an IP (which wouldnt be trivial to implement IMHO) i cant do much about that.

    Doesn't look like this is going to happen more than what we have right now, sorry.
