hi there
i'm from holland, and english isn't my native tongue, but i'll try to tell you my problem..

when i try to login to X, so that no one can see my host/ip number... i get the message that /msg x.channels (and then some more) is an unknown command.

/msg x@channels.undernet.org login "username" "password"
the answer = X@CHANNELS.UNDERNET.ORG Unknown command

anybody knows what i'm doing wrong??

thanks a lot so far :)

This is a common mirc script/alias problem, check your aliases for one that looks like:
/msg x@channels.undernet.org login username password

And add something like /somecommand to the front. ie:
/somecommand msg x@channels.undernet.org login username password


Everyone is often advised to save the command in a script/alias, but not advised how due to the number of available irc client :(

...or just login with //.msg X@channels.undernet.org login username-here $?* , if you're using mIRC.

That will star-up your password field, and will also get rid of that annoying error message.

Can you provide us with more information:

Like what irc client you are using and what version and also to what server do you connect to...as far as i can see it the only problem i see might be either because you are not connected to an undernet server or you connected to an undernet server that is in split....so please provide the info i asked you for and someone might be able to help you.

the only way to get this -> X@CHANNELS.UNDERNET.ORG Unknown command

is to try to login doing this:

/x@channels.undernet.org login nickname pass

pls recheck if you've added it as an automatic perform line.

the correct way is

/msg x@channels.undernet.org login nickname pass

basically anything one starts with /blabla (where blabla is a nonexistent command) gets an unknown command answer whith BLABLA in capital letters.

Please recheck my answer above, there is only 1 way for your irc client to try to use x@channels.undernet.org as the command, and thats because of a script or alias set on /msg. this usually happens on mIRC.

And to correct others:

/x@channels.undernet.org login nickname pass
...


unless it's in a script, such as a bad alias set on /msg (very bad thing)... see my first answer.

Quote:

this doesn't fix the problem, the user still will not be able to use /msg for anything or anyone else :( see my first answer.


Guys the issue is a bad script or alias set, I've seen this hundreds of times, and despite not being a mIRC user, I was the first to discover this mIRC bug. (mIRC started allowing aliases to be set as /somecommand command... instead of /somecommand /command... a few years ago, and thats when the problems started)
