IRC Proxy

Typically, IRC requires you to run a connected client at all times otherwise you miss any communication that takes place while your client is disconnected. This can be overcome by using an IRC proxy and IT Services provides ZNC as a centralised proxy server. More information, including how Linaro employees and assignees can request an account, can be found here. (This service is only available to Linaro employees and assignees – authentication is required to access that page.)

IRC through Firefox

If you are using Firefox as a web browser, there’s also an IRC add-on for it: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/search/?q=irc

IRC through Emacs

If you are an emacs user, you already have an irc client part of your emacs 23 or higher. To activate presse Alt+x and type “rcirc”. Then join any of the rooms you want since rcirc defaults to irc.freenode.net, which is the server Linaro uses for all their chat rooms.

IRC through any web browser

If you don’t really want to configure an IRC client, you can use a web-based one for Freenode

Below are the webchat links to all the public Linaro Channels (Just click on the links below and follow the instructions to connect these channels)

Configuration challenges

Each of these applications is configured slightly differently; if you have difficulty configuring the server details then you can ask for help through email on the linaro mailing list.
