Typo in previous comment, server options are: irc.server.xxx.capabilities and irc.server.xxx.command

Some extra info: it's not automatically enabled.
There are two ways to enable it (depending on what is supported by the server):

1. use capability: set a server.capability = "userhost-in-names"

2. use protoctl: set a server.command = "/quote protoctl uhnames"

Many ircd's have started using CAP instead of PROTOCTL, with the following capabilities:

"userhost-in-names" (UnrealIRCd) == UHNAMES

"multi-prefix" (standard) == NAMESX

PROTOCTL need not be sent if the extensions are enabled via CAP.

This would indeed be nice.

I think this is quite useful as well as currently the 2 most popular IRCD's (from this list: http://searchirc.com/ircd-versions ) (the top 7 are the same 2, just different versions) certainly support it and so do a few others lower down on this list.

UHNAMES stands for UserHost NAMES.

The server will tell you if it supports it, in raw 005, when connecting to it.

If it does, you can tell it the following:


This will tell the server that our client supports both UHNAMES, and the regular NAMESX protocol.

Not a crucial feature, but recommended to have, as more IRC networks begin to adopt UHNAMES.
