I'm helping to setup an ircd-hybrid server at work and I was wondering how to set some default channels on the server.

I've gotten far enough to find how to block some channels with a resv in the ircd.conf file, but I'm not sure how to allow channels. Any suggestions?

This is a version 7.2.2 ircd-hybrid server on a Hardy Heron Ubuntu server.

Is there a particular reason you choose this IRCd over another one? – p858snake Jan 22 '10 at 3:01

What I used to do is setup up bots to startup channels and the bots get admin right. Then you can find a bot which you can use to control the channel.

There's no conf file for this? – afrosteve Jan 21 '10 at 22:11
afrosteve: IRC bot programs are not part of the IRC server software, They are separate ones like SupyBot( – proy Jan 21 '10 at 22:21
I meant conf file for defining the channels, not for controlling the bot. Sorry, that was unclear. – afrosteve Jan 21 '10 at 22:23
