psyBNC is an extremely easy to use IRC-bouncer which has many features. Some of these features include ciphering of talk and connections (Blowfish and IDEA), the possibility of linking multiple bouncers to an internal network including a shared partyline, vhost- and relay support to connected bouncers and an extensive online help system. Many other helpful functions are included.
Install & Setup
psyBNC is not in the Ubuntu apt repo's yet so we have to grab the source tarball from the site.
cd wget http://www.psybnc.at/download/beta/psyBNC-2.3.2-7.tar.gz tar -zxvf psyBNC-2.3.2-7.tar.gz cd psybnc
You are now inside the psyBNC directory and ready to start configuring.
Now you can launch an ncurses based menu to configure your bot.
Take a look at the options and customize your bot till it is the way you like it. Now go in `Bouncer Config', next set Listening Port and Ip. Next select `User' Here you will be able to create a user for your bouncer. You must set Ident, Realname and Password, and vhost too. So return to main menu, and choose exit. When prompted for saving select Yes.
Now open your preferred irc client and write:
/server host port password
For example, assuming these are your parameters:
- Ip : 126.96.36.199
- Port : 43568
- Pass : Change_Me
you must type:
/server 188.8.131.52 43568 Change_Me
