Now i have .exe file that connect to mirc and i don't know how to open it from my vps ??
I try to type :-
-----------------------

[root@server ~]# /root/spotter.exe
-bash: /root/spotter.exe: Permission denied

Please post the output of this command:
Code:
ls -l /root/spotter.exe
Also note that spotter.exe will probably only run on Windows.

So as you can see spotter.exe is not an executable file (at least not in linux). That's why you can't execute it. As I mentioned before, it's probably a Windows file.
ciao,

AFAIK, no, unless you try running it under wine. I have zero experience with wine so I have no idea if that would work or not.

BTW there are tons of native Linux IRC clients. In general, it's better to use a native application than bothering with WINE, IMO.

If you're looking for an IRC client with a CLI then you can try irssi.
