Hosting A Channel On A Linux Server
« on: September 15, 2005, 06:14:20 pm »
I was asked recently about running a WinMx chat room from a server.
Simple enought at first sight huh ?

It turns out its not so easy as it sounds if the server is running linux and, many are  :o

With this in mind I looked at which server was the one that relied on windows runtime libraries the least, as that would be the one that would suffer no performance losses,
anyway heres my results.
   

 Roboserver Dependencies  ( 12 )

ADVAPI32.DLL
COMCTL32.DLL
GDI32.DLL
KERNEL32.DLL
MFC42.DLL
MSVCP60.DLL
MSVCRT.DLL
OLE32.DLL
SHELL32.DLL
USER32.DLL
WINMM.DLL
WS2_32.DLL

Ouka Chat Server Dependencies ( 9 ) , ( 10 )

COMCTL32.DLL
COMDLG32.DLL
GDI32.DLL
KERNEL32.DLL
SHELL32.DLL
USER32.DLL
WINMM.DLL
WININET.DLL
WS2_32.DLL
SHLWAPI.DLL  is also needed on the latest  5.xx series


FxServer  ( 10 )

ADVAPI32.DLL
COMCTL32.DLL
GDI32.DLL
KERNEL32.DLL
MFC42.DLL
MSVCRT.DLL
SHELL32.DLL
USER32.DLL
VERSION.DLL
WSOCK32.DLL


Nushi Advanced Chat Server ( 9)

COMCTL32.DLL
GDI32.DLL
KERNEL32.DLL
MFC71.DLL
MSVCR71.DLL
SHLWAPI.DLL
USER32.DLL
WS2_32.DLL
WINMM.DLL


 WCS ( 5 )

KERNEL32.DLL
COMDLG32.DLL
CRTDLL.DLL
USER32.DLL
WS2_32.DLL


The WCS server is lean by comparison to all the others, so if you are looking to get yourself a server to run your chatroom I think the answer is plain enough, KM is getting too dam smart   :D

I have hosted off a linux server: WinMX and WCS hosted perfectly.
the only thing that i am having problems with is FXServer and Ouka Chat Server. The main culprit is Ouka, i cant get it to display the colours but can host just as well off it.

Even tho atm i cant get FXServer to work i am trying all the chat servers to test if you can successfully host from a webserver. (which at least one room i know of is hosted from a Linux Webserver.).

WCS i couldnt find a flaw with as colours are working can do all the ordinary stuff on it  and i got a great connection to the primaries.

AS for the dll's wine should have them all covered as its a windows runtime enviroment but i could be mistaken.

Just to think how cool is it to have your own room on winmx and not worrying about it shutting down on you cause of microsofts flaws :)
Well now I've got some
A-dvice for you, little buddy.
Before you point the finger
You should know that I'm the man

The server hosting this site is also hosting a WCS room under wine, and it works fine on the default configuration. the only downside to hosting under wine is the huge CPU usage of it, to be honest i dont think a server hosting much other than a few small websites or other small low load services would be able to handle it...
