Connecting to IRC

The information you need to connect to TheCAT’s IRC server is below.


Port (SSL): 6697, 7000, or 9999

Port (non-SSL): 6667

We cannot provide specific instructions on how to configure every IRC client to connect to the IRC server, because there are many clients to choose from, and every client is different. To be safe and sure, please refer to the help/documentation of your client for instructions on how to connect to an IRC server.

We strongly recommend that you connect to IRC using SSL, if your client supports it. Once again, please refer to your client’s documentation for specific instructions on how to connect to IRC using SSL.

Disconnecting from IRC

The method for disconnecting from IRC is different for each IRC client, but most (if not possibly all) clients suppose the universal command:


This will disconnect you entirely from the network.
