UnGateway Introduction

UnGateway is a system that provides additional methods for server administration. It's a base system that can easily be extended to support additional protocols.

At the moment it provides a Telnet server with VT102 terminal emulation, it behaves much like the Bash shell.
The telnet server has been tested with the Linux telnet client and a MS Windows telnet client: PuTTY. The MS Telnet client that comes with every MS Windows version also works, but it's advised to use a different telnet client (like PuTTY, free software).

Security notice: the telnet protocol is plain text, there is no form of encryption. On the side note: the UT2004 webadmin does not have any better protection.

Additionally from version 102 beta the IRC daemon is also functional. The IRC server works pretty much like any other IRC server, so a normal IRC client should work.
Not every function of the IRC protocol has been implemented, but at the moment it's functional.
