psyBNC is an easy-to-use, multi-user, permanent IRC-Bouncer with many features. Some of its features include symmetric 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. It compiles on Linux, FreeBSD, SunOs and Solaris.

Obtaining, Compiling, Installing

     First: download the latest source.
     Extract the source with 'tar -xzf psyBNC-2.4.3.tar.gz'
     Now type 'cd psyBNC'.

     with 'make menuconfig'.

     Configuration example:

     Listening ports - On which port should the psyBNC listen?
     Links - Not needed yet.
     Bouncer Name - Name your Bouncer. Something like 'MyBouncer' works fine.
     Host Allows - To allow anyone set this to '*'.
     Users - Add yourself..
     DCC Host - The IP to use for all DCC sessions. Recommend setting is the same IP that your bnc use.

     Setup is complete. Compile your bouncer with "make" in your psyBNC directory. Type './psyBNC' to start.
