  Description     : Secure Internet Live Conferencing (SILC) server

SILC Server provides full featured implementation of server side of the
SILC protocol. The SILC Server is intended for system administrators who
would like to set up either own SILC router or SILC server. SILC Server
is ideal for small offices and organizations to set up secure
conferencing network in the local area network (LAN). The server is also
suitable for Internet usage as it scales well, is compact and fast.

SILC Server can act either as SILC router or SILC server. It is also
able to act as Backup router and take the responsibilities of the
primary router if it becomes unresponsive. If your network has only one
server then SILC Server acts by default as router server. Small LAN
networks manage fine with only one SILC Server so it is very easy and
fast to set up.

The difference of router server and normal SILC server is that router
server handles most of the message routing and also keeps the global
network state up to date. Normal SILC server on the other hand handles
only local users and message routing to them. This arrangement makes the
SILC network fast and scalable. SILC Server is easy to configure to act
either as normal server or router server.
