    BitlBee is a neat daemon that allows you to use certain IM protocols (such as Jabber, ICQ, MSN, AIM and Yahoo) with your favourite IRC client by connecting to the BitlBee daemon and chatting with your IM buddies just like you do it everyday on IRC.

    Public BitlBee Server[edit]

    Just grab your favourite IRC client (e.g. irssi) and connect to BitlBee.glined.DE:6660 (zakx' server).

    You'll automaticly join #bitlbee.

    You may get some help by saying "help quickstart".

    After setting up your IM accounts, let BitlBee connect by saying "account on". :) Notice that voiceless users are away and BitlBee doesn't show offline users. BitlBee does support Jabber groupchats. You mark yourself as away by using /away just as on every real IRCd, and vice versa you're able to look at peoples away messages by /WHOISing them.
