    What about a ircd tutorial ?In google there's nothing about the subject(i didn't find any!) and i find irc a great tool for instant messaging.Would be fine also to point the attention to those irc softwares (client and server) that encrypts the communication making people more aware that privacy is an important issue in the free software comunity.

    Yeah I must agree. I would also like to see some in depth information about irc and how to set up a decent server.

    To be onest ... i copied an example configuration from /usr/share/doc/ircd-ircu/example.conf.gz and i have a default configuration for it.You can have a go and let me know if there is any problem .I understood part of it but has an its own syntax and i would like to hear from someone maybe knows more than me. I would like to hear more about encryption for example or how to connect your server to a irc network,the proper way of doing it when you first start up. So i'm not the right person to write a tutorial i can't say more than to go and see /usr/share/doc/ircd-ircu/ dir .

    My lack of knowledge and my limited brain capacity is what keeps me from doing that

    the hard part of the IRCD is the config file settings
    its takes about an hour or so to get it right

    so im trying to get that right so i can give an pre-config ver of it out
    so its just a basic starter ver
    and you can mod it yourself to your needs

    the config and compiling is easy part

    the 2 hrs of hell i had doing that part was easy to the config work lol :)

    back to the fun for me ... ) later All :)

    Do you run Debian ? If so have a look at /usr/share/doc/irc-ircu/examples.gz it might be of some help ... but maybe you already done that !
