Install Quassel Core

  • Install quassel from ports:
    portmaster irc/quassel-core
    • NOTE: Make sure to unset [ ]MONO and [ ]CLIENT when configuring quassel.
  • Enable quassel at boot:
    echo 'quasselcore_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
  • Generate an SSL certificate:
    service quasselcore keygen
  • Start quasselcore:
    service quasselcore start

NOTE: Quassel runs on port 4242, make sure the port is open on your firewall.
