    irc shell accounts - possible?

    Hi,
    Im thinking about getting an RAQ server as they are cheap, and many people have been asking me for IRC shell accounts,
    can an RAQ 3 or 4 easily handle about 50 shell accounts in use, or would I be better off with a normal linux dedicated server?
    thanks

    only my opinion... if you aren't going to need DNS/WEB/MAIL on the same machine.. use a normal PC with some flavor of linux/BSD on it...

    I was planning on running the normal DNS/WEB/MAIL and MySQL but allow user's to run IRC processes aswell, and was just wondering if an RAQ would be able to handle all of these?

    About 50 would be your cap - but it would work. The compiler is old by default and the tcl has to be upgraded (be careful there).

    For the cost, it would be cheaper to go with a redhat box, and putting some sort of control panel on it, but yes, a RAQ4 would work fine. Raq3's, not enough power, stay away from them.
