Tip of the day: Check out Special users on how to give trusted users/bots more rights without making them IRCOp.

Server protocol:Hop count

From UnrealIRCd documentation wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The hop count of an entry (user or server) is the number of hops between you and said entry. So a local user would have a hop count of 0. A user on a server directly linked to you has a hop count of 1.

Hop counts are used in the UID, NICK and SID commands (and more). They are also displayed in the WHO client command (unless flat-map is enabled).
