Hi, I am wondering about the DNS module.

Is it needed to have the bot working properly? - Why is it a module and not static implemented in eggdrop?

Under which properties it is needed and under which it is not?

Is the DNS module only needed for botnet functions?

- My eggdrop got 2 small custom scripts, running in Qnet. One is moxquizz' Quiz and the other is a QAuth Script. I am the only user (next to Q) listed in the users file.

What functions of the DNS module are needed at this kind of config?


I am asking because I want to disable the dns module, but since it isn't well documented, I am asking here before I do so.

The dns-module is generally not needed, although recommended.
It provides non-blocking dns-queries, keeping your eggdrop processing other events when waiting for slow replies.
Since eggdrop does dns-queries in a number of circumstances, I would advice that you always use the dns-module whenever possible (even in a statically linked eggdrop), as to prevent it from "hanging" on slow queries (possible making a denial-of-service attack)
