hub.efnet.us offers SSL listen ports for servers

Postby doug » Wed Nov 19, 2008 8:45 pm

United States - Following last friday's release of ircd-ratbox 3.0, hub.efnet.us's ircd was upgraded earlier today. As a result, it now offers SSL listen ports for encrypted server-server links. Admins who wish to take advantage of this added layer of security should consider upgrading their ircd's. hub.efnet.us was first linked to EFnet in 2004.

Currently irc.vel.net is linked to hub.efnet.us with SSL link. irc.servercentral.net will be upgrading to ratbox3 this weekend or early next week to include SSL support for clients and link to hub.efnet.us.

Ah yes,

Server-TO-Server SSL Encryption, a very beautiful thing.

Excellent job by the Ratbox team -- And EFnet as a whole, I suppose. :P
