Runing Icechat on LAN
« on: November 18, 2004, 01:32:00 PM »
Hi.
I need to run several independent

IceChat instances on my LAN. There is a main computer that acts as proxy server (FreeProxy is running). I can simply connect

to IRC server through my http proxy - but only one instance at one time. I need to use ident server - I have Identd

downloaded. How can I configure IceChat to use both - proxy server (port 8080) and ident server (port 113) concurrently? I

use win2k and for some reasons prefer to use proxy server against sharing dial-up connection. Can anybody help?
Thanks.

Jozef

Well, of course, IceChat has its own IdentD server built in,

so it always wants to use that.

What happens to the other versions of IceChat, after the 1st one connects

successfully?

After the first computer is connected to IRC server (using

IceChat or Mozilla's IRC client) others receive the folloving error message from IRC server: "Closing link [address] (Too

many user connections (local))".  IRC server's admin told me, it is because there are more than one connection from one IP

address and therefore it is impossible to detect the exact user. He suggests to use ident server.

No, I doubt that will fix your problem. It simply means that

it will not accept any more users from your IP, which is your proxy server.

If you run a seperate IdentD server on

your proxy server, that "may" help, if the admin says so, and then that would just over rule the IdentD server built into

IceChat.
