Following on from my previous post.  I have now set up my old Raspberry Pi Model B with ngircd irc server.   This seems to be working well.  So far I can:

  • Run a bot on my desktop and connect this to the server
  • Open up port 6667 so that external users can use the server for testing

To do

work out why I am having problems running the irc bot on the Raspberry pi as it does not seem to want to connect to the server despite running on the server.

Anyway this is a start,  and my firewall settings for this could suggest why I was having problems with assault cube.

In the mean time I am still on the Tech jam irc server if you want to chat.

I encourage others to experiment with IRC and other servers too.
