Our IRC Network runs current and full featured IRC software: InspIRCd 3, Anope 2.0, and PyLink. InspIRCd 3 features a lot of new IRCv3 standards along with the vast amount of modes and commands that InspIRCd is known for. Anope 2.0 is a robust IRC services package, providing simple user account (nicknames), channel management, memo system, and personalized vHosts. PyLink is also an IRC services package which we primarily use for channel linking/relaying (Janus replacement).
- Multiple client servers located around the globe.
- A hub server for all servers to connect to; keeping latency low between each server.

- Secure client connections on port 6697 and plain-text client connections on port 6667.
- Automatic host cloaking enabled so your IP address/hostmask is not revealed to everyone on IRC.
