***** Introduction *****
UnGateway is a system that provides additional methods for server
administration. It's a base system that can easily be extended to support
additional protocols.
At the moment it provides a Telnet server with VT102 terminal emulation, it
behaves much like the Bash shell.
The telnet server has been tested with the Linux telnet client and a MS Windows
telnet client: PuTTY. The MS Telnet client that comes with every MS Windows
version also works, but it's advised to use a different telnet client (like
PuTTY, free software).
Security notice: the telnet protocol is plain text, there is no form of
encryption. On the side note: the UT2004 webadmin does not have any better
Additionally from version 102 beta the IRC daemon is also functional. The IRC
server works pretty much like any other IRC server, so a normal IRC client
should work.
Not every function of the IRC protocol has been implemented, but at the moment
it's functional.

***** Installation *****
Copy the .u and .int files to the System directory.
Add the following to your system configuration (UT2004.ini):
This is all you need to install the system. Now you will have to configure the
interfaces and applications.

***** Configuration *****

**** Applications ****
Applications contain the commands you can enter into the system. There are a
couple of application included with the system.
To install a application to have to add it to the application list of the
GatewatDaemon in the system configuration:
You can add as many application classes as you want.
The following application classes are included with the system:
class name            description
UnGateway.GAppDebug   Contains debug commands, there's no need to install this
UnGateway.GAppDefault Contain default commands like "help" and "quit"
UnGateway.GAppCron    Provides a cron daemon to program commands to be executed
                      at a set time.
UGUT2004.GAppSystem   Provides general system commands for UT2004, like shutdown
                      and servertravel
UGUT2004.GAppSettings Contains commands to change settings and maplists
For an overview of all available commands and some additional information checkt
the UnGateway-help.html file

**** Interfaces ****
Out of the box UnGateway doesn't do much. You need to configure interfaces and
applications that are available. To add an interface add the following to your
system configuration:
The following interface classes are available:
class name          description
UnGateway.GITelnetd Telnet server, emulates a VT102 terminal server
UnGateway.GIIRCd    IRC server

**** Other options ****
Besides the interfaces and the applications you can also change the following
setting. However, most of these don't require any changes.
CmdAliases=(alias="reboot",command="shutdown now \"restarting the server, please
return in a couple of second\"")
CmdAliases=(alias="p",command="players %@")
      This sets the log verbosity. It's a binary list of flags: Error = 1;
      Warning = 2; Info = 4; Event = 8; Debug = 128. You probably only want to
      set the Error flag and maybe the Warning flag.
      This is the authentication system used to authenticate the logins. The
      system comes with one system UnGateway.GAuthSystem, this will just used
      the UT2004's AccessControll class to validate the logins.
      This will allow you to create aliases for certain commands. You can have
      as many aliases as you want, you can only use real commands in the command
      value of the alias. Aliases have a higher priority than the actual
      commands. these aliases are system wide, so every user can use these
      aliases. By default no aliases have been configured.

**** General interface configuration ****
Each interface has the following configuration options. Additional configuration
options may be available per interface.
      The TCP port to listen on for incoming connections. By default the built-
      in interfaces have not configured any listen port. So you will have to set
      them up correctly before you start the server.
      If the listen port is already in use, use the next available port to bind
      to. It's adviced to set this value to false.
      The maximum number of clients allowed. If the max has been reached, new
      clients will be denied.
      This controlls from which IP mask client may or may not connect from. The
      default policy is to accept clients from any IP mask. The order of the
      AccessPolicy is important, the last match has the final ruling.
      The hostmask can contain the following wildcards: * = zero or more
      matches; ? = one single character.
      The policy can either be AP_Allow or AP_Deny

***** Application configuration *****
Some applications have configurable options. Unless stated otherwise, all
configurations belong in the system configuration.

**** UnGateway.GAppCron ****
      the Cron daemon class, no need to change this

*** UnGateway.Cron ***
Crontab=(Command="somecommand",Type=EC_Delay,Time="5",Desc="added by
      The dummy client used to capture the output of commands. No need to change
      The cron configuration. You can add as many cron entries as you want.
      field     description
      Command   the command to secute
      Type      EC_Delay or EC_Time
      Time      time configuration, format depends on the value of Type.
      Desc      description
      bDisabled when true the command will never be executed
            The command will be executed after set number of minutes after the
            level has been loaded.
            The command will be executed when the set time has been reached.
            Time field format, 5 fields: minute hour day month day_of_week
            minute:      0-59
            hour:        0-23
            day:         0-31
            month:       0-11
            day_of_week: 0-6
            A * can be used as wild card. Optionally each field can have a
            divider for re-occurance: val/div. For example a field has the
            value: "0/5". This means that it will match: time % div == val -
            > time % 5 == 0. If time is minutes then it will match every 5
            minutes, 1/5 will also match every 5 minutes, except that it's the
            2nd minute of every 5 minutes, 5/5 will never match. A wildcard in a
            divider will be changed to 0: * /5 -> 0/5, 0/ * -> 0/0 (never

*** UnGateway.CronClient ***

***** Interface configuration *****
Most interfaces (or it's client handlers) have additional configuration options.

**** UnGateway.GITelnetd ****
No additional configuration options for the interface. But the client handler
has some options.

*** UnGateway.GCTelnet ***
CommandPrompt="%username%@%computername%:~$ "
      The command prompt format. The following replacements can be used:
      %username%, %computername%, %hostname%, %hostaddress%, %clientaddress%
      The maximum login tries before the connection is closed.
      the number of seconds to wait before the user can try to log in.
      Number of seconds to wait before a user can try to log in again. this
      prevents brute forcing a password.
      Disable authentication completely. You should not do this, it will allow
      everybody to login without a username and password.
      The pager is the automatic scroll feature that allows users to scroll up
      or down when a command output is more than could fit on the screen.
      Save each user's command history to the UnGateway.ini file. This will add
      some useless overhead during login and logout.
      The class to spawn for saving\loading the command history
      The intial chat mode. With full chat mode everything the user enters will
      be a chat command. With partial chat only part of the screen is reserved
      for messages and only when the user uses the say command it will be
      considerd as a chat message.
      CM_Disabled Disabled
      CM_Full     Full chat mode
      CM_Partial  Partial chat mode
      When logged in you can use the following commands to change the chat mode:
      Alt+c toggle partial chat mode
      Alt+C full chat mode
      Note: instead of Alt the Esc can be used
      Show the message of the day
      The Messsage Of The Day.

**** UnGateway.GIIRCd ****
No additional configuration options for the interface. But the client handler
has some options.

*** UnGateway.GCIRC ***
      Show the message of the day on login
      if set the user must login with a valid username and password when they
      Maximum Channels a user can join
      Allow channel creation. It's strongly adviced not to enable this
      The message of the day. You can use the following replacements:
      %hostname%, %channels%

***** Usage *****
Ofcourse each interface work differently.

**** Telnet ****
Any telnet client should work with the telnet server, however for MS Window I
advise you to use the free client PuTTY. It's much better than the standard MS
Telnet client.
The rest of the system works pretty much like a GNU BASH shell. Here's an
overview of all special keyboard commands:
key         description
backspace   delete the previous character
            perform tab completion to complete the current command.
tab         Note: currently this only works for the commands, not the command
Alt+c       toggle partial chat mode
Alt+C       enter full chat mode. to exit the full chat mode press Ctrl+D
Ctrl+A      move the cursor to the beginning of the line
Ctrl+D      delete the next character, on an empty line: logout
Ctrl+E      move the cursor to the end of the line
Ctrl+K      cut the text from the cursor to the end of the line to the clipboard
Ctrl+Y      paste the current clipboard buffer
Arrow down  scroll forward in the history
Arrow left  move the cursor to the left
Arrow right move the cursor to the right
Arrow up    scroll back in the history
By default the internal pager is enbaled. This means if a command shows more
information that you have room on your screen it will start the pager that will
allow you to scroll up (PageUp) and scroll down (PageDown) to view all data. To
exit the pager either press Ctrl+C or Q.

**** IRC ****
The IRC server works pretty much like any other IRC server. However not all
functionality is has been implemented.
By default two channels are created, the game channel and the admin channel
(&Admin). The name of the game channel is contructed from the server's IP and
port. By default the available IRC channels are listed in the MOTD, otherwise
you can use the /list command to list all available channels.

*** Game channel ***
The game channel is much like a normal IRC channel, by default everything you
say will be said on the server, and vice versa. The players in the game join and
part this channel automatically.

*** Admin channel (&Admin) ***
The admin channel is a special channel (and only local on a server) where you
can enter the UnGateway commands. These commands have to be prefixed with a . (a
period). Commands not prefixed with a . will just be said on the admin channel,
other IRC admins logged in on this channel will also see this.
The admin channel is only available to logged in admins.

*** Logging in ***
There are two ways you can log in. If you specify a password during login the
system will automatically try to log you in as an admin. If you don't specify a
password you will log in as a normal user.
To log in as an admin you will have to use the /oper command.
When you are logged in as an IRC Oper/Admin you will be able to join the Admin
channel, and you can see the complete user details when using /whois.
