ACCOUNTINFO
/msg NS ACCOUNTINFO <nick|*account>
Displays infomation on the specified account, including the date the account was registered, the last time it was used, its infoline, its flags, its hostmask(s), its channels, and nicknames of users currently using the account.
You may use *Account instead of Nick as the name argument; the * makes NS use the name of an account directly (useful if the user is not online).
See Also: nickinfo, userinfo, account flags

ACCOUNT FLAGS
The following flags on accounts are defined:
S OS access suspended
p Use PRIVMSG for messages rather than NOTICE
h User is a support helper (must be in support channel to override security)
H User is a network helper (can toggle security override)
g God mode (security override for IRC staff)
s Account suspended
c Use mIRC color codes in responses
f Account frozen/on vacation (will not be unregistered for inactivity; cleared when account is authenticated against)
n No-delete (will never be unregistered for inactivity)
b Hides you from the staff list
See Also: accountinfo, set, CS staff

ADDIGNORE
/msg NS ADDIGNORE [user@host]
Adds the specified user@host to the account ignore list that you are authenticated to with NS.
See Also: delignore

ADDMASK
/msg NS ADDMASK [user@host]
Adds the specified user@host to the account you are authenticated to with NS. If no mask is given, it uses your current mask.
See Also: auth, delmask

ALLOWAUTH
/msg NS ALLOWAUTH <nick> [account] [STAFF]
Allows the specified nick to auth to the specified account. Allowauth does NOT add the hostmask of that nick to the specified account.
If no account is given, it will cancel the allowauth for the user (assuming the user has an allowauth).
If the account is marked as a helper or oper, the STAFF qualifier must be given afterwards. This reduces social engineering attacks.
See Also: addmask, auth

AUTH
/msg NS@service.beirut.Com AUTH <account> <password>
Authenticates yourself with NS to the specified account. You must use auth before you have any access to network services, including channels that are registered with CS.
See Also: pass, resetpass, authcookie

AUTHCOOKIE
/msg NS AUTHCOOKIE <account>
Requests that NS send you email with a cookie that allows you to auth to your account if you do not have a matching hostmask. (For example, if your ISP changed your IP or hostname.)

See Also: cookie, delcookie


< Back to top >

COOKIE
/msg NS@service.beirut.Com COOKIE <account> <cookie>
Completes the maintenance action (for example, activating an account or changing your password) for which a cookie was issued. The cookie will then be forgotten.
See Also: authcookie, resetpass, set, delcookie

DELCOOKIE
/msg NS DELCOOKIE
Requests that NS cancel your authcookie or resetpass cookie.

Removes a hostmask from the account ignore list that you are authenticated on.

EMAIL POLICY This network's policy on account email addresses.
