Irssi with IRC Proxy on OpenWRT

Irssi has this nifty feature that allows you to proxy through the client. This isn’t installed by default, and is not configured in the Makefile.

This will be a sparse walkthrough, until I can flesh it out more later. I did modify the Makefile using –with-proxy, but this didn’t seem to work (the ipkg contained only the binary irssi and other sparse files).

In any case, requirements:
OpenWRT SDK, with Irssi package
Copy the following from the SDK directory:

cd openwrt/build_dir/mipsel/irssi-0.8.10/src/irc/proxy/.libs
scp * root@openwrt:/usr/lib/irssi/modules/

Starting irssi and performing /LOAD proxy showed the following:
Warning: Warning!! Password not specified, everyone can use this proxy! Use
/set irssiproxy_password to set it
Warning: No proxy ports specified. Use /SET irssiproxy_ports =
= … to set them.
