Tip of the day: If you still have users on plaintext port 6667, consider enabling Strict Transport Security to gently move users to SSL/TLS on port 6697.

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).
