Znc is an advanced internet relay chat (IRC) bouncer/proxy/relay. Znc can be used to run irc as a service in the background so closing terminals, and restarting X do not result in join/part messages to IRC channels you're chatting in.

Install

To add init.d scripts:

# echo "net-irc/znc daemon" >> /etc/portage/package.use/znc


For sasl authentication:

# echo "net-irc/znc sasl" >> /etc/portage/package.use/znc


# emerge net-irc/znc



Configuration

Server

Run the emerge config command to setup znc.

# emerge --config znc

Set your ssl certificates up, and set your irc client to accept self signed certificates. ie accept invalid certificates.

Set bind address to 0.0.0.0 so the system can access the web, and connect to real irc networks.

Set the address/domain to 127.0.0.1 and port to 45654.

Set the web interface module to load only. the web interface is located at the ip/domain & port specified, as in the irc proxy address & port. if using ssl its at https://127.0.0.1:45654 if not its http://127.0.0.1:45654

Client

Use the web interface to set the client up.

SSL

SSL connections to upstream irc servers require the port number be prepended with a plus symbol.

eg Adding server [irc.freenode.net +6697]

for ssl auth see http://wiki.znc.in/Cert

SASL Authentication

To automatically be identified before joining channels requires either SSL auth certificates, or SASL. make sure you're using SSL before configuring SASL because it will send passwords in plain text if not.

Set the username, nickname, ident, and real name to your registered nick.

Possibly just tick the box & "set MyUsername pa$$w0rd"
