Hi,

I've looked around for an answer on the web, but after reading a handful websites I'm still confused as to what I can do with logging in psyBNC.

I'm using psyBNC2.3.2-4 and I keep it permanently connected to mIRC because I am having problems with my ISP at the moment and I get disconnected quite frequently (as often as every 3 minutes sometimes).

Because my ISP disconnects me without warning I always time out of my connection (so my private log isn't activated until it is too late).

In an ideal world I would like my bouncer to log all my queries and channels (so that i can catch up what i missed when i was timing out), but delete all logs older than five or ten minutes (to save on HD space).

Now, even with my limited knowledge, I can tell that this isn't likely to be possible. So a less ambitious question is how do i log all private messages from a single user (let's call her LamestGF) regardless of whether I am connected or disconnected from the Bouncer?

I thought it might be:

Code:
/addlog UnderNet~LamestGF :*


but that isn't working.



I hope that all made sense.


Will

1) psybnc will log private messages without an addlog (addlog is for channels)

2) "addlog #channel :*" will log all channel events for #channel

3) to read the channel logs, it can be easier to use "quote playtrafficlog last"

P.S. If you are using multiple networks you have to define the network, which gets a little trickier.

ah okay, thanks for your help. It doesn't look like I can do what i want to do. I need psyBNC to log my private messages all the time, because the private log is only activated when the bouncer thinks i am offline (which is five minutes after i actually go offline if i get disconnected from my isp and time out).

psyBNC logs all private messages by default, calling it 'privatelog'. Typing '/quote playprivatelog' places your messages into the psyBNC window of your client. Read Jestrix's psyBNC tutorial or -heaven forbid- the 'README' file included with your psy for more information

First of all YooHoo, don't patronise me. Secondly if you're going to quote something READ IT FIRST.

Here is what your FAQ says about the private log:
Quote:
/playprivatelog -- plays the log of all messages sent to you when you were disconnected from the bnc. The log will be opened in a window called -psyBNC.


Here is what I said about the private log:
Quote:

Let me explain again:

I would like to know if there is a way to make psyBNC log my private messages all the time regardless of whether i am online or offline. Because otherwise I miss the things other people say to me when i am disconnect from my isp and my connection to my bouncer is timing out.


If you still need any further clarification YooHoo, then don't hesitate to ask.

William, you may be better off using the BitchX (BX) IRC client.
Most shell companies have that client installed. Check if your shell host has screen installed (again, most do).
Then BX can be started from the shell by using screen as such: screen BitchX -H <my.vhost.of.choice> -n <Nickname> -a <default.server.to.connect.to>

In this way the screen program will keep the client active even when your connection to the client drops (then you simply scroll up to see what you've missed).

it's you who needs clarification dude

psyBNC is merely a proxy, not IRC client - so naturally it features logging only while you are disconnected from it

when you are connected to it, use your IRC client logging capabilities

as of the time that passes until your psyBNC discovers you have ping timeout-ed, it can't be helped - live with it (or find a better ISP, one that at least correctly terminates your TCP connections)
