Puppy Linux Internet Relay Chat

IRC is a form of instant communication over the Internet. It is intended for group (many-to-many) communication in discussion forums called channels, but also allows one-to-one communication.

Using Puppy

The easiest way to join our chatroom when you are using Puppy is to click on the Chat icon on the desktop.

Using IRC Programs

If you have a IRC-enabled browser (e.g. Opera or a Mozilla-based browser with ChatZilla installed), go to irc://irc.freenode.net/puppylinux in your browser and then pick your nickname. If that doesn't work then with other IRC-capable programs like attym, Pidgin/Gaim, X-Chat, irrsi, etc. enter irc.freenode.net as the chat server and #puppylinux as the channel in the appropriate places.

Accessing Freenode Puppy Linux Channel Without an IRC Program Installed

If you have no IRC program installed or prefer not to you may use the Freenode Web Access site and any browser. You may either enter any nickname you wish but to use a Freenode registered nickname then check the box for “Auth to services” and also enter your username and password.

Freenode Policies

Use of the Freenode-hosted channel is subject to Freenode's policies.
