Connecting to the DareNET IRC Network is simple and straight forward. We currently offer two methods for doing so:
Chat directly from your favorite browser using the webchat client. There's nothing to install. Just connect and start chatting!
You can use your favorite desktop or mobile IRC client to connect to DareNET. The server you'll want to use is irc.darenet.org. Common ports for our IRC servers are 6660 thru 6669 and 7000. We support SSL-enabled connections on ports 6697 and 9999.
