CWirc is a plugin for the X-Chat IRC client to transmit raw Morse code over the internet using IRC servers as reflectors. The transmitted Morse code can be received in near real-time by other X-Chat clients with the CWirc plugin. CWirc tries to emulate a standard amateur radio rig: it sends and receives Morse over virtual channels, and it can listen to multiple senders transmitting on the same channel. Morse code is keyed locally using a straight or iambic key connected to a serial port, or using the mouse buttons, and the sound is played through the sound card, or through an external sounder.
The PTlink IRC daemon integrates some of the most advanced features needed to manage an IRC network into the stable core from Hybrid IRCd. It is fully integrated with PTlink IRC Services and PTlink Open Proxy Monitor, providing a great platform for anyone starting an IRC network.
SecureServ is an IRC trojan detector. It's much like a virus scanner, but aimed at IRC networks. Using several methods, including version checks, behavior analysis, and general pattern matching, it aims to detect trojans, viruses, and floodbots which connect to your IRC network. Its "brains" are based on a "Definition file" which contains information on how to detect trojans. To update detection for new trojans, you only have to download a new file.
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Internet is a German introduction to the technical aspects of the Internet. This book explains both the low-level protocols IP, ICMP, TCP, and UDP and the high-level protocols SMTP, POP3, IMAP4, NNTP, HTTP, Gopher, FTP, IRC, DICT, Finger, Daytime, DNS, and Whois.
open proxy scanning bot (formerly NeoBOPM) is a loadable module for the NeoStats IRC Services. It scans clients connecting to the IRC network for insecure proxies, and also looks up a DNS blacklist for previously registered insecure proxies. It caches the results of scans to increase perfomance, and with multiple bots, can be configured for load balancing. It currently supports Hybrid7, Unrealircd, LiquidIRCd, Bahamut, QuantumIRCd, MysticIRCd, NeoIRCd, and Ultimate, with support for other ircds planned.
Smuxi is an irssi-inspired, flexible, user-friendly, and cross-platform IRC client for sophisticated users. Smuxi is based on the client-server model: The core application (engine) can be placed onto a server which is connected to the Internet around-the-clock; one or more frontends then connect to the core. This allows the connection to IRC to be kept up even when all frontends have been closed. The combination of screen and irssi served as the example for this architecture. Smuxi also supports the regular single application mode. This behaves like a typical IRC client; it doesn't need separate core management and utilizes a local engine that is used by the local frontend client.
PircBot is a Java framework for writing IRC bots quickly and easily. Its features include an event-driven architecture to handle common IRC events, flood protection, DCC chat, file resuming, ident support, multiple servers, and more. Its comprehensive logfile format is suitable for use with pisg to generate channel statistics. Full documentation is included, and the Web site contains a 5-minute step-by-step guide to making your first IRC bot.
