ngircd (ngIRCd) is an IRC server. Its written in C and runs in most unixes.
How to install ngircd.
apt-get install ngircd, or similiar :)
 From source
0: get the software from developer git
git clone git://ngircd.barton.de/ngircd.git
1: optional: make changes to source code
Notice: This patch only works in standalone mode atm!!! no networking is possible between servers. If you want to, you can enable anonymous<->pseudonymous coexistance mode by applying the XorPatch. Either you do it by hand (like shown just below) or you just download the source code with patches already applied and goto step 2 with it.
XorPatches.diff contains the diff file for the above changes. since the latest updates of ngircd this file has been deprecated!
git clone git://ngircd.barton.de/ngircd.git cd ngircd wget http://kaos.cryptoanarchy.org/XorPatches.diff patch -p1 < XorPatches.diff
then goto next step:
2: generate config program
cd ngircd ./autogen
3: optional: read about config options
4: you probably want SSL encryption
or if that does not work
5: compile ngircd
6: optional: install ngircd automagically (also installs man files)
to uninstall it later:
7: optional: install ngircd manually
- the ngircd binary is named ./src/ngircd/ngircd after compile is successful. move it somewhere.
- type ./ngircd --help to get info on what it requires to run (not much)
locate the file, open it and read it. then make those changes you like to make :d
its probably at /etc/ngircd or /usr/local/etc/ngircd
man ngircd.conf has more info :)
 Enable anon channels
If you are using XorPatches, in the config file, add this to [FEATURES].
[FEATURES] DNS = no Ident = no pam = no ScrubCTCP = yes # silent drop CTCP commands (no ctcp version or file sharing, no ip leak) MorePrivacy = yes # remove logon time, idle time and some other AllowAnon = yes # allow anon channels + pseudo/anon coexistance mode ("/mode +a" in #example)
 make SSL ciphers
...um? i forgot how.
