Internet Messaging

Internet Relay Chat

Several IRC clients such as irssi and epic are installed and supported. Users may connect to the daemon listening on 6667 and join the #mongers channel. The IRC daemon requires a password before accepting an IRC session. This password may be found in the passwords(1) man page on miracle.

Strongly advise the use of auto-connecting and auto-joining of channels, including auto-authentication where required. This results in minimal downtime when users' screen sessions are killed during an upgrade.

Secure Live Internet Conferencing

slic-client has been installed and may be freely used.

AIM, ICQ, Jabber, MSN & Yahoo provides a bitlbee gateway which you may connect to with a regular IRC client at localhost:7667. Bitlbee is a proxy which accepts connections from any irc client and allows you to communicate using AIM, ICQ, Jabber, MSN & Yahoo protocols.
