Some buisness partners and I wish to create a highly secure chatroom that no person would be able to find. Would it be possible to make such a chat that requires a password to display the chatbox, then a sigh-in box? I want to be able to haev full control over the user names and passwords. I have a hidden link for the future chatroom on another website but i dont know where i can store the chat itself...any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Could you just make the website secure, requiring secure password login procedures, and dedicated primarily to hosting the chat. I would think that would be fairly secure. Of course nothing is perfectly secure, so youd still need to chat in code. :whistling:

That would work but I kinda want the website to act as a front, hiding the chat within it.

Why re-invent the wheel? I'm sure you can do this with a number of messaging programs out there right now (like AIM).

If you are looking for something free that is publicly available, whats the difference? You are going to get something that everyone knows about anyways.

Again, why re-invent the wheel? Set up a channel on an irc network (we use wyldryde) and set up a password protected channel. That way, anyone can see it, but only those with the password can enter.

There are many ways to do what you want, you are just overcomplicating it.

First off, if you hide a chat client within a directory in the FTP space of a website, nobody will know its there. Second thing, not anyone would be able to see it unless they hack into the directory of a website.

you can also set the channel so that it does not appear in /list and /whois results, making it look like the channel is not there

we use wyldryde. Their website can be found at http://www.wyldryde.org
instructions for setting up a channel can be found at http://www.wyldryde....hat/getchat.php

for an IRC client, I use mIRC, found at http://www.mirc.com

I do have some forum experience, but I'm not sure I could help without knowing which forum software you're using.

I prefer phpBB but I use forum hosts like Invison free or iForumer. Do you know anyone that would be interested or would you be able to help? Mainly I need help building the forum on a theme and getting more members.
