irlp and echolink mutually exclusive?

Craig, KM6LYW
 

I just took over an echoirlp installation, and the community claims that echolink users are kicked off if an irlp user joins in some manner.

Is irlp and echolink mutually exclusive on echoirlp systems?

If so, is there a way to disable irlp and retain echolink?   it seems they're inextricably linked through the bridge.   Would it be sufficient
to "unregister" our node from irlp?  if so, process for this?    

thanks!
