Purpose of Galactic Sector
Due to the large abuse of
misconfigured Wingate, Socks and Proxy servers being exploited
regularly, the NetGamers IRC Gaming Network (NetGamers) is now checking
all users upon connection to any of the our servers. This check is
ONLY DONE if a user attempts to establish a connection to an NetGamers
server. This should not be considered an attack on your system. Be
aware that this sort of connection to your system is probably common
if you use services such as free IRC networks, game servers, etc...
If you do not desire this type of check to occur, then simply block
access to the NetGamers network servers. Connection to and use of the
NetGamers is conditional upon acceptance of any and all applicable
policies of the individual servers that make up the NetGamers.

This has occured because when you connected to a server on NetGamers you were scanned by our proxy scanner (Galactic
Sector Scan). If your firewall shows a connection attempt on ports 1080, 3128, 8080, 8000, 80, 81 or 23 from
sectorscan.netgamers.org this means your pc is being tested by our detector. These tests
are totally harmless and do NOT compromise your system in anyway. Their only function is to see if you have
a port OPEN or CLOSED. As soon as the detector receives a response it'll stop probing that port.We scan every
client that connects to NetGamers to look for vulnerable wingates, proxies, or ports that could be used by hackers, etc
to attack other users, network servers, etc.These scans are done to protect everyone.
By maintaining a connection to NetGamers IRC you agree to these probes and test. Please refer to the Message of the Day (MOTD)
of your server for more legal information regarding this matter.Below we have included some helpful resources to aid
you in repairing or upgrading you proxy or wingate to one that is more secure.
