The "conn_waitpong" Module


This module requires all clients to respond to a PING request before they can fully connect. This is useful for preventing drive-by attacks from sources that can send data but not respond.


To load this module use the following <module> tag:

<module name="">


The <waitpong> tag defines settings about how the conn_waitpong module should behave. This tag can only be defined once.

Name Type Default Value Description
killonbadreply Boolean Yes Whether to kill clients that respond with an incorrect ping value.
sendsnotice Boolean Yes Whether to tell a user to run /QUOTE PONG ... when waiting for a response.
Example Usage
<waitpong killonbadreply="yes"
