Irssi proxy usage:
First you'll need to have the proxy module installed, either configure
irssi with --with-proxy and do make install, or manually:
cd src/irc/proxy
mkdir ~/.irssi/modules
cp .libs/ ~/.irssi/modules/
In irssi, say:
/LOAD proxy
If you want the proxy to be loaded automatically at startup, add the
load command to ~/.irssi/startup:
echo "load proxy" >> ~/.irssi/startup
You really should set some password for the proxy with:
/SET irssiproxy_password secret
Then you'll need to configure the ports/ircnets the proxy listens in,
something like:
/SET irssiproxy_ports ircnet=2777 efnet=2778 freenode=2779
There we have 3 different irc networks answering in 3 ports. Note that
you'll have to make the correct /IRCNET ADD and /SERVER ADD commands to
make it work properly.
The special network name "?" allows the client to select the network
dynamically on connect:
/SET irssiproxy_ports ?=2777
Now the client can send <network>:<password> as the server password, e.g.
/CONNECT ... 2777 efnet:secret
to connect to efnet. If there is no irssiproxy_password set, you can
omit the ":" and just send the network name as the password.
By default, the proxy binds to all available interfaces. To make it
only listen on (for example) the loopback address:
/SET irssiproxy_bind
Note that bind address changes won't take effect until the proxy is
disabled and then reenabled.
Once everything is set up, you can enable / disable the proxy:
/TOGGLE irssiproxy
When the proxy is configured and running, the following command will
show all the currently connected clients:
