Hi Pentium,

Are you running Linux, FreeBSD, SunOs or Solaris? You need one of
these operating systems to run psyBNC.

Hello there,

If you would like to set up psyBNC, you're going to need a shell
provider. That is, a company that will host a shell for you.

What is a shell?
"The outer layer of a program that provides the user interface, or way
of commanding the computer."

So with a shell, you will have more control over your host. Allowing
you to run programs on their server, such as psyBNC. Here are a few
hosts that have what you need:

There is also a Google Directory containing many sites which offer
similar services:

Once you've selected a host, and purchased an account from them,
you're ready to install psyBNC.
This tutorial gives a very detailed explanation of installing psyBNC
on your host. If this seems too daunting of a task for you, your
hosting provider should be able to help you during the install

One thing that is not mentioned in the tutorial, is that you will need
to connect to your shell with an SSH (Secure Shell) client to run any
of the commands. What this does, is it allows you to connect to your
shell account, and then use the command line instructions, as in the
tutorial. PuTTY is a very popular SSH client, and it can be downloaded

Once downloaded, run the program. Type your shell host address in the
"Host Name". Select "SSH" under protocol. Then click "Open" and you're
good to go. A window will open, and will ask for your user name, and
password. Once entered, you will be able to type the commands listed
in the tutorial I linked above.

The tutorial mentions "root", which you also asked about. Root simply
refers to the top level of the hierarchy of the folder system.

For example, say you have the folders "C:\My Documents\work\" on your
computer. "C:\" is the root. It is the topmost directory.

Hopefully this information helps you. Feel free to ask for a

Hello there,

Your original question stated that you would like information on how
to "set up a psy bnc". I'm sorry I misunderstood.

I will try to find a host that already has psyBNC installed, or will
be willing to install it for you. I will get back to you with this
information as soon as I can.

Hello again! One of these sites should suit your needs, as they all
offer psyBNC already installed:

Look under "PsyBNC Account". This appears to be the best deal:

Scroll down until you see "PsyBNC Shell":

Select "psybnc" under "Shell Services" to order.

Thank-you, glad I could help.
