The Login-on-Connect (LOC) feature allows you to pre-login while connecting to AfterNET. Using Login-on-Connect bypasses you from RBL scans and hides your hostname before anyone can see your real IP address. We recommend everyone give it a try.
To use Login-on-Connect, you must first have an AfterNET AuthServ Account. Register for one here if you don't already have one.
Login-on-connect uses the “server password” feature built into most IRC clients. All you do is put your specially formatted login information into the server password box like this:
/username/password (slash, your username, slash, your password)
for example, my username is Rubin, and if my pasword was zanzabar I would put the following into my password box:
When you connect to AfterNET using the new password, you should see a message like the following:
*** Attempting service login to authserv *** AUTHENTICATION SUCCESSFUL as rubin
In the password box enter “/username/password” (without quotes).
Note: Replace username and password with your real AuthServ username and password. Click “OK” to save the changes. Click “Connect To Server” and look for the authentication successful message.
