What is IRC?
IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat. It's an older and very simple method of communication on the internet that has been around since the late 80s. It was created in 1988 and is a very well established protocol, with clients and services for IRC available for pretty much every type of device and operating system. For more information, read the Wikipedia page.
How can I access the IRC?
The most reliable and most encouraged method of using the IRC is to use one of the many IRC client apps that exist for practically every operating system and device. Popular app-based clients include:
  • YChat (Windows)
  • mIRC (Windows)
  • HexChat (Windows)
  • Pidgin (Windows, Linux)
  • XChat (Linux)
  • Colloquy (Mac OS X)
  • Limechat (Mac OS X)
  • AndChat (Android)
  • IRChon (iPhone and iPad (iOS))
What details do I enter into my IRC Client?
When configuring the client to use the AGNPH server, the following information should be used:
  • Server: irc.agn.ph
  • Port: 6667
  • Nick: The nickname you want to use.
  • Channel: #agnph
If irc.agn.ph isn't working, you can try two other servers on the same irc network, irc.kitsunet.net and irc.digibase.ca. If your IRC client continues to have problems connecting, be sure to contact a staff member for assistance.
