    ircd-hybrid password problem

    I have installed ircd-hybrid from the Ubuntu repo. It is version 7.2.2. I can't get password protection to work. If I add a password= line to the auth block, it just doesn't allow any connections at all anymore. I have tried both a plaintext password and an encryped password (with mkpasswd), neither works. If I leave the password= line out, the server works fine (except for the password, obviously).

    I'm using Ubuntu 10.04. Please don't tell me to upgrade to 12, the 'server' has only 256MB RAM.

    I'm having the same issue. I did a little digging and found in the example.conf, the following flag:

    flags = need_password;

    I added it, and now it won't accept any password. What gives?
