About a year ago, I announced the bnc beta program. It has worked, most of the time. There are core problems in the server-side software that we used that we could not work around. We will be sunsetting it in a few weeks after all of its current users have been migrated to our new hosted bouncer.
Usage is very basic:
- Sign up for a NickServ account
- Connect to
bnc.ponychat.neton SSL port
6697with a password formatted like this:
nickservusername:nickservpassword. For example if your username is
AzureDiamondand your password is
hunter2, you would enter your password in as follows:
- There is no step 3
This will work with every client everywhere, provided it can support doing SSL connections. We do not currently support webpanel access or access to the bouncer over an insecure connection (but are working on these).
Please let us know what you think about this service!
