We are an open-linking network, anybody can link! To link, you need to setup our ircd, OpenStarIRCu, maintained by Ellenor. Download for zip: https://janicez.net/openstar-ircu.zip Unzip it, go to the ircd directory. Make sure flex and libssl-dev is setup: Debian: $ sudo apt-get -y install flex libssl-dev Do: ./configure –prefix=$HOME/openstar Then do: make all install. Then cd to ~/openstar. Go to lib and copy example-openstar.conf to ircd.conf Modify ircd.conf as much as you want. Then go to ~/openstar/bin. Do ./ircd and the ircd will start.

We are an open-linking network, meaning anybody can link! To link, you need to setup our ircd, currently u18.104.22.168+openlink1.1+ronsor (beware1.6.3+ronsor)
You can get the source at http://ron-sor.net/vr/ircd.tgz
You will also need FreePascal for Linux binaries (only 2.6.2 and 2.6.4 binaries will work): i386 i86-64 Install FreePascal binaries and continue…
Commands to execute in order to install the ircd: wget -O ircd.tgz http://ron-sor.net/vr/ircd.tgz # download ircd tar xvzf ircd.tgz # untar ircd archive cd bircd # go to ircd source directory ./compile # compile ircd
* Now the IRCd is compiled! *
Once downloaded, you can edit those configs, or make your own. Just make sure you have these two lines in your ircd.conf file (C:lines - connect to server lines): C:22.214.171.124:pass:star.irc.ron-sor.net::20 C:126.96.36.199:pass:marco.irc.ron-sor.net::20
Do ./bircd to start the ircd. Then connect to your irc server, and /oper up. Then do /quote connect marco.* or /quote connect star.* Join #chat. You should see everyone there :) You can ask for op there now too.
