Starting a IRCd

Post by vitorhp » Wed Jan 28, 2009 8:38 pm


I'm trying to start a new Unreal IRCd. I followed all steps to compile and was OK, but i'm having trouble with the .conf
WHen I do ./unreal start gives:

Code: Select all

* Loading IRCd configuration ..
* Configuration loaded without any problems ..
* Dynamic configuration initialized .. booting IRCd.
Possible error encountered (IRCd seemingly not started)
Check above for possible errors, and this output of
ircd.log. If you cannot solve the problem, read
Unreal.nfo on where to get support
[Wed Jan 28 20:31:18 2009] - Error binding stream socket to IP port 6667 -[]:Can't assign requested address is apointing to as must be, but I don't know what's happening...

In unrealircd.conf there is:

Code: Select all



Code: Select all

name "";
info "Open Tibia Network";
numeric 1;

Is is correct?
What's wrong?

Thank you,
Vitor H. Pereira

The error pasted ("Can't assign requested address") means the IP address you're trying to use for a bind-ip or in listen blocks is NOT an IP on the computer on which UnrealIRCd is running.

For a list of IP's youo CAN bind to see "ipconfig" on windows, in a command prompt, or on *nix see "ifconfig" or "/sbin/ifconfig"

Your Country: Image

If you have a shell from a shell provider, you may be best to talk to them about the error with the IP. Same goes for any other kind of service that has told you you can use a specific IP (VPS, Dedicated Server, etc) and it isn't working.
