IRC

Official international channel

To join, /connect -tls_verify irc.libera.chat, then /join #irssi

If you have trouble getting Irssi to work, you can use a webchat in the meantime.

Other channels

Many other networks like IRCnet, EFNet or QuakeNet also have #irssi channels.

There may be some international channels on IRCnet, like

  • #irssi.fi – Finnish
  • #irssi.de – German
  • #irssi.pl – Polish

If you have something to ask, please JUST ASK instead of asking if you can ask or if someone can help or if anyone is there.

Servers

To connect with Libera.Chat, /connect -tls_verify irc.libera.chat or on Irssi 1.3 or later /connect liberachat

Most IRCnet servers aren’t open for everyone, so if you’re having trouble finding one, use open.ircnet.net which resolves to a number of open IRCnet servers that you should be able to use.

For EFNet, use irc.efnet.org, or check their website for more servers.
