Summary Error message: "Auth_open: connection refused"
Question When a player connects I see an error message about "Auth_open: connection refused"

When a player connects you might see something like this:

Sun Aug 08 21:45:56 1999 :: [*****] BUG: Auth_open: connection refused

This is to do with the server trying to connect to an "ident" server. I am not sure what that does (if someone would like to write and explain I will be glad to hear from them).

However you can eliminate the error message by editing the file:


and changing the line (near the end) with "IdentTries" in it to read:

IdentTries     0
