This is a port of the ircd-ratbox IRC daemon.
This version is the 'testing' branch; it usually contains more features,
but may contain as of yet unidentified bugs. Admins wishing to try out new
features or test the development release may prefer to use it over the
standard production release.
ircd-ratbox is the primary ircd used on EFnet; it combines the stability
of an ircd required for a large production network together with a rich
set of features, making it also suitable for use on smaller networks.
Changes Include:
o Optional SSL support to enable encrypted connections between clients
and servers, as well as server to server links.
o Add support for SSL only channels, channel mode +S.
o sqlite3 for handling and storing k/x/d lines.
o Support for global CIDR limits.
o Added adminwall allowing admins to broadcast messages to each other.
o Creation of new library archive 'libratbox'.
o Support for forced nick changes (instead of collision kills).
o New ssld and bandb processes for SSL connections and ban checking;
these allow ratbox-3 to make better use of multi-processor systems.
Groups: ircd
- ASSERT: off
- DOCS: on

ircd-ratbox-devel has been successfully installed.
Sample 'ircd.conf' and 'ircd.motd' files have been created in the
ircd-ratbox configuration directory. A sample configuration file is
included for EFNet-like configurations that can be used instead. You
should now edit these files as per the ratbox documentation.
A configured ircd.conf file is required to start the server.
Once you have added ircd_ratbox_enable="YES" to /etc/rc.conf, the
server can be started by running:
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/ircd-ratbox start
You can check your ircd.conf configuration file for syntactical errors
using the following rc.d script command:
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/ircd-ratbox conftest
The ban.db database can be checked and updated using 'bantool -u'.
For safety, updates should be done while no ircd is running and before
starting the new version.
/usr/local/bin/bantool -u
Note that the ssl_only_channel compile option has been removed, and
should be added as a configuration setting (use_sslonly) in the
ircd.conf file in order to activate the +S channel mode.
Be sure to check out 'ratbox-services' if you need a services package.
