Link server

So, you are interested in making a leaf or a hub connection to the euIRC Network?
Well in the end it's easy to do that but until you reach the end you have to prove yourself as able to connect to our network. Therefor we have some requirements which should possibly all be met by you, your server and your server location.


  • Your server has to be in the country you want to link in - you will not be linked if you e.g. have a *.nl shell on a *.uk server and want to link to *.nl
    We don't want servers from shell providers (Puretec, Server4Free, Plusserver).
  • You have to be the server administrator. (You should have hardware access.)
  • Your server should be able to handle up to 1024 connections (Leaf) or 5 server links (Hub); therefor it sould be AT LEAST a Pentium 233/64 MB RAM/4 GB HDD
  • Your server should run as a dedicated server - means no other servers running on the machine but euIRCd
  • You should have 10 MBit/s bandwidth minimum.
  • Your server must have an existing userbase or get an own userbase during trial. Servers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland must already have an existing userbase approximating 5% of the users of euIRC.
  • You must be at least 18 years old.

You think you exactly match all this criteria? Well, then go on and fill in the form. :)
