Introduction to our IRC network
Our IRC network can be accessed with an IRC client on
irc.f-hub.org via port
6697 (SSL only). It runs on the modern IRCv3 capable IRCd Ergo.chat. It therefore comes with built in history and multi-client connections out of the box and no additional bouncer is required. We also fully integrate with XMPP and Matrix via our own gateways that allow federated access to any IRC channel.
Accounts from F-hub.org are automatically registered on our IRC network can can be used to authenticate via SASL login. In addition it is possible to register independent accounts through NICKSERV like on other IRC networks. Please contact us in those rare cases where there is a conflict with an existing user account name.
Channel history is automatically logged by the network itself (via IRCv3 history standard) and stored for 30 days. It can be easily accessed by history capable IRC clients or alternatively via
/history #channel 6h or similar, pleae see the full guide here.
If you are new to IRC, please refer to our IRC tutorial that explains basic features and commands.
We run a helpful little bot that can be invited to any channel via
/invite bitbot. Type
!help to ask the bot for instructions. You can learn more about it on our dedicated wiki page here.
Our IRC network also offers gateway access from federated XMPP and Matrix accounts. Please note that due to the federated nature of these systems chat-logs may be stored for a longer period on connected third party servers and the gateways themselves.
