Iridium was constructed to be the easiest, most intuitive server management package ever made, whilst not skimping on power features.
With an aesthetically pleasing user interface, customisation potential and a slew of useful additions both implemented and on the way, Iridium will ultimately provide an easy to use server management facility, allowing total server control, creation and more, to ensure even the newest recruit to the server management world will have no trouble at all.
Introducing KickStart and PortMapper
The final say in easy server creation.
KickStart is a wizard interface that allows you to create an entire server in under 6 steps. Select your preferred Bukkit version, installation location and any plugins you want, and take advantage of a custom-made RAM allocation algorithm to determine the optimum amount of memory your computer can dedicate to the server. Then sit back, relax, and unless you have slow internet, your server should be created in under two minutes.
Once you've done that, it's time to launch PortMapper, Iridium's answer to the problems faced by many newcomers into the server hosting game. Conveniently bypassing the need to configure a router to allow port forwarding, it takes advantage of the UPnP protocol to allow you to open your server to the world about as fast as it takes you to type a name, a port and click "OK". And it works for anything that needs port forwarding, not just Minecraft.
