rndware psyBNC

A version of psyBNC with modifications that has been ported to Windows using Cygwin.

psyBNC is a proxy for IRC networks. It is a widely regarded product among IRC-focused hosting companies. While originally for unix-based systems, psyBNC has now been ported to Windows with a few small changes and additions to ensure stability in a Windows environment.

Also, the "partyline"-channel has been enabled in this release due to large amounts of user requests. Version 1.0.1 and up also features experimental IPv6 support. In version 1.0.2, the connection delay between clients has been set to 60 seconds to avoid throttling of connections by IRC servers.

rndware psyBNC Server is compatible with Windows 2000 and XP. Includes support for Windows Ident Server. rndware psyBNC Server is not compatible with Vista, 7 and Server 2008 yet. We will release a NT 6.x version if there's a demand for it.
