Topic: ircd

I'm having some trouble getting this to run properly.

this is the config file I'm using:


it starts up fine and I can connect, but when someone else connects, or sometimes randomly, I just get disconnected.  /var/log/messages shows this after the disconnects.

any ideas?

Re: ircd

Strange. I can't say that I know much about running IRC servers, but I have always wanted to smile

Re: ircd

What ircd is this? The very old one in OpenBSD pkgs/ports?

Re: ircd

yeah, sorry, I meant to post the version info.  it's ircd 2.10.3p1 from OpenBSD ports.

Re: ircd

Try to avoid that. I don't think it's maintained anymore. Aside from the arcane config file syntax, it's feature-starved and generally unstable. Try setting up IRCu (Undernet) or ratbox (EFNet). They both compile and run well on OpenBSD. You're going to have to go out of packages/ports for both though, but it's a snap.

If you get IRCu + GNUWorld (services) up and running, consider linking with me? You can see both at work via (standard port 6667) and But I think you've already been there, asemi. On the server I mean.

Good luck, have fun.

Re: ircd

thanks for the suggestions, mish.  I'm checking out IRCu and the GNUworld services right now.  once I'm done updating to 4.0-stable I'll give them a shot!
