    telnet to irc?

    Hey, was wondering if anyone could help me on somthing. Is it possible to connect to a irc server using telnet. If so, what are the steps, a tutorial perhaps? Or any newsgroups that i could get, that i could telnet to. would help.
    you cant catch what you cant see.

    Telnet to the server on the IRC port and talk to it using the IRC protocol.
    Use thing like /nick /channel etc, etc,.
    Some servers require you to be pingable so you would have to send a pong when it pings you.

    telnet irc.antionline.com 6667
    :services.antionline.com NOTICE AUTH :*** Looking up your hostname...
    :services.antionline.com NOTICE AUTH :*** Found your hostname (cached)
    :services.antionline.com 451 :You have not registered
    I don't seem to get any further, it just responds the same..

    deLorian, I sugest you look up the IRC client talk, with something like ethereal and find out how the client, if ur to talk to irc via telnet..

    Why exactly do you want to use telnet to IRC ?
    Can you not use the online thing found on the site or something like mIrc ?

    You don't have to reply to pings sent by other users, but if you don't reply to pings sent by the server you'll get dropped out (usually after 60 or 90 seconds, depending on the server's configuration) with a ping timeout message. Reply with pong :ip_address or pong :sequence_number.

    here is the full tut.

    ethereal is a sniffer, you use it to capture and monitor your eternet.

    You start ettereal (and do some easy configing)
    You run any irc chat program (I use X-Chat)
    then you look at how the irc chat prog does his talk to the irc server..

    that way you can do it yourself in telnet..

    more on ethereal: http://www.ethereal.com/faq.html

    /me has used this to be able to telnet to the MSN servers.. that's a bit harder then irc though couse of the MD5 stuff you'll have to do to make msn chat connect..

    OK, do this.. I will use Arlington.VA.US.Undernet.ORG for example:


    [root inc]# telnet arlington.va.us.undernet.org 6667
    Trying 199.184.165.133...
    Connected to arlington.va.us.undernet.org.
    Escape character is '^]'.

    ** SERVER OUTPUT **

    NOTICE AUTH :*** Looking up your hostname
    NOTICE AUTH :*** Checking Ident

    ** MY INPUT **

    user myident myhost Arlington.VA.Us.undernet.org :mynick
    nick mynick

    ** SERVER OUTPUT **

    PING :1920908305

    ** MY INPUT **

    pong 1920908305

    ** SERVER OUTPUT **

    I shall remind you that the IRC protocol is well-covered in a bunch of RFCs, which may be found at www.rfc-editor.org . Have fun searching for them!
    Hmm although I am posting here.. isn't it a bit off-topic? :/
