Jabber/XMPP

Address
#channel@irc.hackint.org

We are running a Jabber to IRC bridge that enables the use of IRC Channels as Jabber MUCs. For a good mobile experience configure your XMPP-Server to support Stream Management and Message Archiving.

Just join our MUCs (Groupchat) with the name #channel@irc.hackint.org.

Read up on how to effectively use the bridge with extended features like persistence and message archiving in the official documentation.

From DN42

Requirements Addresss
dn42.net Participation ircs://irc.hackint.dn42:6697

The DN42 entrypoint uses a certificate signed by their own CA. Using this certificate requires a client that supports Server Name Indication (SNI).

Connection should also be possible from within chaosvpn and Freifunks Intercity-VPN, provided you don't filter DN42 address space.

From Tor

Onion Version Requirements Address
v3 SASL irc://dtlbunzs5b7s5sl775quwezleyeplxzicdoh3cnhm7feolxmkfd42nqd.onion:6667
v2 SASL irc://nakufgztylanf4mw.onion:6667
v3 none irc://ncwkrwxpq2ikcngxq3dy2xctuheniggtqeibvgofixpzvrwpa77tozqd.onion:6667
v2 none irc://5ogdsfyoqk47ompu.onion:6667

The TLS port for all onion services will be deactivated after 2018/11/21, use the plaintext port instead.

We provide access via the Tor networks Onion services. As Tor already provides an encrypted transport and getting a certificate for a .onion domain is stupidly expensive we only provide plaintext connections on port 6667. This should not harm the confidentiality of your connection.
