# weechat relays
weechat introduced unix socket relays
in version 2.5 which is a much easier way to
offer per-user relay access.
is configured to proxy to the default unix relay
socket location (
). to get started using it, follow these steps:
- in weechat:
at your shell:
/relay add unix.weechat %h/relay_socket
/set relay.network.password mysupersecretpassword
in your relay client:
chmod o+rw ~/.weechat/relay_socket - this allows nginx to connect to your socket on your behalf
- connection type: websocket (ssl)
- websocket path: weechat
- relay host: username.envs.net
- relay port: 443
- your relay supersecretpassword
