setup irc fileserver

I'm looking to setup an irc file server with my slack box and was wondering what program I should look into, what security issues should I be worried about and in general, how to be secure as possible while serving files on IRC.

First irc client that pops up to mind is BitchX - cause it has such a foul name. So any feedback/information would be really helpful!

You can create your own irc server with, which is rather user friendly ircd and/or use eggdrop bot from in some another irc server. You can configure eggdrop to act as a file server. It only has advantages when you don't have an external ip address so you can't connect to your home's ftp server from net directly. It is done by using eggdrop which is run locally. For security, your bot mustn't run as root and must have access only to the files which you are going to share.
