IRCd-Hybrid

Managed to get two IRCd-Hybrid servers talking to each other.  Lessons learned:

  • DNS entries (forward and reverse) are a must.  Host table lookups weren't working.
  • The OPER password has a not-safe-for-production work-around (ask me sometime).
Hint: The second issue gave me headaches for days, until I downloaded the source tarball and looked at the sample config file.
