This is a port of the ircd-ratbox IRC daemon.
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
- IPV6: on

ircd-ratbox 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 should be checked and updated using 'bantool -u'.
For safety, bantool updates must be done while no ircd is running and
before starting the new version.
/usr/local/bin/bantool -u
Notice: ircd-ratbox has been updated to follow the current stable
release branch (3.0.x). All previous branches are no longer supported
by the ratbox team. Users of ircd-ratbox are advised to create new ircd
configuration files based on the examples provided.
