The Undernet ircd allows a "star" topology; of which 2 servers is of
course a degenerate case:
On server1's ircd.conf:
M:server1.domain.net:*:My Main IRC server:8005:22
The M: line tells the server that it'll be accepting connections on
port 8005 (this is commonly used for server to server connections).
The last number in the line is the server identifier; should be an
integer, different for each server in the network.
The C: line tells it to attempt to connect to server2 on port 8005
using the specified plaintext password (connection class 90).
The N: line tells it to allow connections from server2 using the
specified password (encrypted using "mkpasswd" if your ircd is
compiled with encryption).
The P: line tells it to allow non-server connections on port 6667.
On server2's ircd.conf:
M:server2.domain.net:*:My Main IRC server:8005:23
Note that the C: line here contains the plaintext version of the
password which appears encrypted in server1's N: line, and vice versa.
Hope this helps,
