All other services working fine without problems. With command

I tested the connection with 3 different irc clients at 2
different internet connection with the same result.
Are the realy differents between "normal" packets (for example
http or ssh and irc packets about size?
No, there should be no differences. I'm not familiar with FreeBSD pf,
but most probably your setup isn't working as intended.
When I start ngircd by restart freebsd (rc.conf:
I always received the errormessage: Can´t change working directory
to "/nonexistent": No such file or directory". At this situation,
the ChrootDir parameter is not active in ngircd.conf.
ngIRCd changes its working directory to the one of the user it is
configured to running with. See parameter "ServerUID" in ngircd.conf.
The default is "nobody", and it looks like /nonexistent is configured
as its home dirctory on FreeBSD 7 -- which does not exist.
What can I do ?
- change the home directory of the user "nobody",
- or better: create/use an other user for running ngIRCd an set

What can I do ?
A chroot directory must be prepared to run daemons: the configration
file, shared libraries, and eventually more must be reachable inside
the chroot base directory.
What is the best nickserv for ngircd ?
Is there a howto about implement this nickserv to ngircd
ngIRCd doesn't support a special services interface, so as far as I
know, the are none.
