IRC Servers and Channels

IRC, or Internet Relay Chat is a real-time text-based chat protocol. I’m commonly seen on freenode and tilde.chat.

Connecting to Freenode:

  • chat.freenode.net – port 6667 (unencrypted)
  • chat.freenode.net – port 6697 with SSL (encrypted)

Connecting to tilde.chat:

  • localhost – port 6667 (on node servers only)
  • irc.tilde.chat – port 6697 with SSL (encrypted, uses a round-robin load balancing system that connects to a random node server)

My Public Channels:
