Undernet users have the benefits of the mode +x (host hiding) as a way to keep their real public addresses hidden from malicious intentions. Everyone has the right to keep their personal information private. So, please, respect this right.

No more comments from this side.

Ping is the IRC server inquiring whether the client (your IRC software) is still connected to the server. Pong is the response from your client indicating you are still there. If the server does not get a pong, you are disconnected by a ping timeout. The process is automatic.

The PING/PONG system is a means for the server to check wether the client is still there. If the client is lagging big time, there's no point in wasting resources to maintain the connection. The idea behind it is pretty simple:
If the client is inactive (ie: doesn't send any messages) the server sends it a PING message.
The clients automatically respond with a PONG message.
If the client doesn't respond within a given time (twice the duration of ping frequency (set in the ircd.conf Y:lines)) the server disconnects the client.

Reference:
The client-server protocol
ircd.conf

When you send a CTCP ping to someone you send a special kind of private message. The messege contains a timestamp. The other client gets the message and returns it to you (this time using NOTICE, not PRIVMSG) without touching the timestamp. Your client then makes the difference between the current timestamp and the timestamp in the message. That's the round-trip lag.

I heard that if someone pings you too many times you get lag and you could get disconected by a Ping TimeOUT ! Is it true ?
