Hiding IP Address when using IRC servers
When I use an IRC server and join any room it says I have joined and other various details along with a line such as n=Michael_aust@22.214.171.124.1 (Michael)
If I run whois: on my self from the IRC client, this is shown again. However if I were to run it on other people it mostly shows something like n=JOHNDOE@Thiswebsite.org (JOHNDOE)
How do I stop my self from showing my IP Address on IRC servers, or change it so that it is something like the above JOHNDOE line?
I set my hostname as debian during the install. Was I supposed to set anything else?
I am using Konversation 0.19 if this is any help
Thanks in advance
