    Re: Chat As promised

    ok after spending time trying to get chat system to work with all browser and fix some of bugs i am giving up on using that chat system and going to replace it with something else

    in fact have got new system installed but want to double check it before i go public with it...

    Sorry to change halfway through but felt it would be better to change now before we get any futher...

    cheers

    Russ

    problem is with using irc is lot of firewalls if used with in school will block it and so seemed senabale to stay away from irc but if people want to change our minds then willing to listen

    CGI:IRC works over a standard http connection. The connection to the IRC server is done by the Web server. There is no issue with firewalls or web proxies beyond any content filtering that might pick up the urls.

    I have bandwidth going spare on my virtual box and I have setup CGI IRC before. If you want I could sort that out.

    Re: Chat As promised

    Ok I have the basics running at http://www.cphsolutions.co.uk/cgi-bin/irc.cgi .

    Theres a few issues at the moment though. It's on a basic install so I will add to the config later and quaknet doesnt like clones so it seems more than 5 from the same host eg the cgi script will get kicked. There is a way to get it to display hex encoded ips before the @myserver so I will try that tonight as it involves a perl script out of the web directory and an entry in the inetd config.
