Looking for a Stealth Hub!

Which hub software is the best? Where can I find script XXX? Discuss it here...(no, this is not for advertising your hub...)

Looking for a Stealth Hub!

Post by gambazoolu » 2006-12-11 16:43


I'm looking for a hub that if a non-registered user tries to connect to,
the hub will "play dead" and look broken, or better yet, appear as if

do you know anything like that?

Thank you!

This isn't feasible from a protocol point of view. It is possible to accomplish something similar - denying access to the hub's port except for the IPs (or IP ranges, if they're dynamic) that your users are on. A firewall should be able to accomplish that for you. You'll have to manually administer the lists, but it's the closest thing to what you're looking for.

i can't use IP because it is not static and the range covers people i don't want knowing about the hub....
until i find a better solution, i use PtokaX and give a desription that may be thought of as bad address... to the untrained eye ;-)
it looks like this:
[17:34] *** Connecting to hub.cometo.org...
[17:34] *** Connected
[17:34] <PtokaX> Unable to connect! address may be incorrect.
[17:34] *** Connection closed
i wish i could at least change the <PtokaX> to something like <Failure>...
