KolymaNET IRC (or just, KolymaIRC) is a public Internet Relay Chat Network which is used by us to provide a platform for communication amongst the users of our websites. The service also supports channel registration, so that any user can create his own channel or register his own nickname.
To join, you can connect to irc.kolyma.org on port 6667 for insecure connections. For encrypted connections, you need to use port 6697 with TLS you may need to specify to your client to use TLS. On Hexchat, its "/server irc.kolyma.org +6697" - and on irssi, its specified using the -tls handle.
