Ctrlproxy project runs on a computer with a 24/7 internet connection and allows you to transparently connect to IRC from anywhere on the world to your nick.
It connects to one or more IRC servers and then allows you to connect to it with any number of clients, providing access to these servers. This is very useful if you don't want to leave IRC but still want to be able to use it from home, school or work.
Here are some key features of "Ctrlproxy":
· Connect to one server with many clients under one nick transparently
· Connect to multiple servers using only one process
· CTCP support when no client is attached
· irssi-style logging support
· Transparent detaching and attaching of clients
· Password support
· Auto-Away support
· Backlog replication. Replicate from last client quit or last line said by user.
· Keeping track of number of times a certain user uses a certain pattern
· Direct, inetd-style interfacing with local IRC servers (such as bitlbee)
· Responses to queries are only sent to the originating client of the query
· SSL support
· Flood protection
· Logging in a user-specified format
· IPv6 support
· GNU glib
What's New in This Release:
· Support for listening on IPv6 addresses was fixed.
· SSL client support was improved.
