Hello all,

I've decided to bring back the IRC server for BA. Bear in mind I'm an IRC n00b so I'm still getting to grips with how it works, getting OP's working to the right people etc.

You can login using the website domain name and port 6667. We are chatting in #betas.

URL: betaarchive.co.uk
PORT: 6667
CHANNEL: #betas

I hope to see you all there.

<s>Just so you know the port number is temporary until the datacenter gives me access to my control panel to unblock port 6667. Their control panel is a bit broken and won't let me unblock it at the present moment.</s>

NOTE: Please use your forum nickname when on the IRC. It makes life much easier.

Andy (Admin)

Can you install an PHP IRC script on the website? There are many.

EDIT: May I consider making my own using Internet Direct?

Though a CGI-IRC client would be good for people who are behind firewalls at school or work who can't get to IRC...

...and it only works if the server uses Linux.

Just use www.ircatwork.com.

Linux or windows, if the server has CGI support, it will work.

Only if the CGI use standart API.
And CGI::IRC use a lot of *nix API.

Does CGI:IRC work on Windows?
It hasn't been designed to work on windows natively (eg: Activeperl with IIS or Apache) due to use of unix domain sockets. Running apache and perl under the environment provided by cygwin is reported to work. This is only required of the server - nearly any web browser on nearly operating system should work as a client.

IRCXpro? lol.

Especially since it's a cracked version.

If you can't configure Unreal, you shouldn't be running an IRCD.

IRC took off for a week or so then died again. The server is still running however.

Why not start a channel on an established irc network like irc.p2p-network.net. All the services are already available and someone else gets to deal with the network maintanance. You just have to maintain the channel. Not only that, but you'll get the casual passerby who might stop and idle (plus persistant lurkers like me :)) and curiosity may generate some site traffic and generate new members. Having your own server is all very well and good, but why reinvent the wheel?

We have our own server so we maintain it, we add on what we want, and we don't get noobs coming along and doing damage. Its here for BA members, not for any tom, [censored] and harry.

I knew it would do it, but its a common phrase so who cares. If you can't work out what the word is then you're a noob ;)
