Complete shell/*nix newbie here. Shell activated today, trying to install psy.

Followed tutorial to the letter, went through this forum and other faqs on the web, but it will simply not connect! :(

EDIT: Only when Ive set the host to "debian" or "localhost" it seems to be able to listen for connections properly (thanks Zoltan). Leaving the host at *, which seems to work for everybody else, did not work.

Now, for some reason I keep getting connection refused or a timeout whenever I try to connect to the port it is supposed to be listening on.

debian.polarhome.com 31982 .. times out
81.216.198.11 31982 .. connection refused.

I *am* supposed to be connecting to debian.polarhome.com and the port the bouncer is listening on right?

:crybaby:

Please advise.

Thanks.

debian.polarhome.com only works internally for connections. Leave host as * and try from your client. gate.polarhome.com 31982

Pinging debian.polarhome.com [192.168.10.20] <= local internal IP address.

Got it working now, thanks sjaz and Z :wub:

When the host was * psybnc wasnt able to bind to anything (0.0.0.0). When I used "debian" as host, it binded ok but after much hassle I've found out it was binded to an ipv6 host while I was trying to connect on ipv4 :/

I tried using 192.168.10.20 instead and it workes just fine now via ipv4.

A lil question now if I may.. is it supposed to be this lagged (ping is around 5 seconds)? Right now I'm connecting to irc.efnet.org to get a random server.

Can anyone please recommend an efnet server that polarhome gets a low ping to? I cant ping from my shell (which is intentional to prevent abuse I imagine), but I checked the efnet server list for servers in sweden.

irc.dataphone.se tells me im not authorized and irc.du.se lets me connect just fine but is supper lagged :(

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks guys

Don't forget, the main polarhome node resides on a 1mbit upstream connection that's shared between 10 servers and god knows how many active users.

so it is rather obvious that the line itself is highly congested.

the lowest ping server(s) would be the ones in sweden. you can't get any better than that i'm afraid.

you could, if your shell was on mandrake, but that's a different story.

Well I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth. I'm happy with what I have.

Could you please elaborate about how a shell on mandrake would change things?

Also, I understand the policy is no vhosts whatsoever right?

A shell on mandrake would be different `cause mandrake is seperated from the main node in sweden.
the mandrake server resides about 1.5 meters from my left leg, and has a 1.5/96 connection [yeh i know the upload sucks, but it's the best i can get]

having that said, my ping to the israeli efnet server is about 40ms, and 100 to the swedish one you mentioned above.

and no, u can't get any vhosts.

Hi,

I'm getting
"Cannot create listening port .. aborting"
when trying to start psyBNC. I have made sure that the port is not in use via Used ports-netstat page.
I'm trying to use port 13131 and I'm on FreeBSD.

Pls help!
Regards, Luffarn

Hello,

the problem was that the netstat page was not upated on gateway after the crash.

Indeed there is a process running on the port:
Code: Select all
tcp4       0      0  freebsd.13131          nl117-191-163.st.49320 ESTABLISHED


It means your program is running well or somebody else took that port.
Regards,
Z

Hi again,

I managed to get psybnc working, but now I'm trying to run a second psybnc, but get the same port error, I have set the port to 13138.

You have any idea how to solve it, if it's even possible to run multipl bnc´s?

Hello,

it is allowed... there is just a number of background processes limit.
Please make sure that you bind every process on an unused port.

Ok. I have tried several different ports, but none of them work. 13138 and 13140 for example.

I can remeber that I had to do some kind of uninstall before I got it to work the last time. But I cant remeber the command I used.

Do you have any idea why it's so difficult to get psybnc running?

Hello,

I have never run myself... but I guess you should read http://www.polarhome.com/service/ports.html specially the part about direct ports.

Otherwise you should wait until other, more experienced admins or users answer.

No not yet, I need to speak to Zoli to get my password reset though, seems it's been some years since I used the account!

Hi there,

I'm in the process of performing some testing for you, I'll compile two psybnc's one into ~/psybnc1 and the other ~/psybnc2 using two ports from the freebsd port table and feed back shortly.

Hi,

I forgot about this thread, sorry.
Anyway, I got it to work, I had to change listening host to 0.0.0.0.

Thanks you for your help!
