I just recently set up an IRC server on my Ubuntu box (11.04, no remix), and would like to set up a server password that one must provide on login. How do I do this?

I have dancer-ircd and dancer-services installed if it makes any difference

To make your IRC private so everyone must specify a password to use the server. This question has been answered on serverfault.com in the past.
