Another new European client server - efnet.port80.se

Postby Hardy » Tue Feb 15, 2005 11:36 am

The european portion of efnet approved yet another server for a 60 day trial link. This time it was a swedish server named efnet.port80.se hosted by Port 80 AB located in Stockholm. The admins of this server are ice and stevoo. The server will be another fully open server which allows friendly bots.

Port 80 allready hosts the port80.se.quakenet.org cluster consisting of three servers which holds around 50-60k users at peaktime on QuakeNet so they are not unknown to the aspects of IRC.

just a trivial question about EU-EFNet policy from someone who doesn't really need to know anyway, but why doesn't this server have mentors like other new EU servers have?

according to their new link policy, the mentor "may be appointed". it doesn't say they must be appointed. if this is the case, i would assume the decision is based on experience of the admins linking the server?
An existing operator on another server may be appointed by
EU-EFnet to help the new administration link their new server.
The new administration must make sure this mentor has access
to the machine and account from which the ircd runs.
In God we trust,
Everyone else must have an X.509 certificate.

Yupp, you are right munky. In europe its normal that an admin takes the mentoring role on a server if the people are new to efnet.

Ahnberg is mentoring Port 80 as he knows the people involved IRL. However because we know that the persons involved are clued on irc they dont require as much follow up like the new .hu server, where none of the admins have had any previous irc experience.

Its been a while now since we had 3 .se client servers on efnet. It used to be irc.light.se (efnet.sto.telia.se), irc.du.se and irc.hemmet.chalmers.se (irc.ced.chalmers.se/irc.csbnet.se/irc.dataphone.se) but after telia/light delinked sweden has only had two.

[Corrected: wrote telia.sto.se instead of sto.telia.se, thank wundr :) ]
