ngIRCd is a free, portable and lightweight Internet Relay Chat server

ngIRCd is a free, portable and lightweight Internet Relay Chat server for small or private networks, developed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

The server is quite easy to configure, can handle dynamic IP addresses, and optionally supports IDENT, IPv6 connections, SSL-protected links, and PAM for user authentication as well as character set conversion for legacy clients. The server has been written from scratch and is not based on the "forefather", the daemon of the IRCNet.

The name ngIRCd means next-generation IRC daemon, which is a little bit exaggerated: lightweight Internet Relay Chat server most probably would have been a better name :-)
