I want to place IRC chat applet on my server, the thing is I want to authenticate users just as I would with any Ajax chat script - making it impossible to steal other nicks. For this I'm looking for some IRC service that will not let users in without server authentication. It could look like this:
PHP script prints IRC Applet tags with parameters:
login=$username date=$now token=$token_generated_for_now channel=#MyChannel
Then the applet would use these values to try to login on IRC server, and then IRC server would ask my server if these credentials are OK. The IRC server will know where to ask for this, as it asked for callback URL when I registered the channel name.
How do I setup something like this?
