Title: Encrypted chat

Would be a nice feature. Do you have any plans

for this? Would you be using something like SSH2?

No Plans on it, but there could be something added to DCC

Chat to encrypt it, thats quite possible,

I kinda suppose you already know it, but if you have any

plans on doing anything with SSH, maybe you can make use of putty <http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/>.

It's a free SSH client for Windows and it is also used in other free software that implements SSH in any way, like

WinSCP.

I thought I'd let you know :)

Well, I am guessing there is no source code for Putty, so,

not much use to me then. No sense using a seperate program to do the work, I would rather have it integrated. SSL Support

will be possible in IceChat 6, its just a matter of getting around to it.

I hate to be the one to tell you the bad news, but you

guessed wrong :-).
The source-code is available here: http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/putty.zip

The

link to the full download site is: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

You can view the

license here: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/licence.html. It's open source so I think they'll let you

use it if you'd ask

I hope this will help you

Well, i'll be a monkeys uncle.
Well, the code is in C++,

so, might be able to make something form it.
No promises though :)

Well, I really see no point in it, so its hardly a

priority.

Once the client is in Beta, I might look into it, but thats not until Spring 2005, I imagine.
