irc relay

oftc over tor

oftc.net IRC onion

Note: this relay is setup with permission from oftc.net

The relay is at:

Port 6667

Connecting is done without SSL (since Tor does that already), and the relay does use SSL on the way out.

Client setup

socat tunnel

socat TCP-LISTEN:6691 \ # note: not SSL!

connect ii to it

This is how I do connect to it with the ii client:

ii -s -p 6691 -n equwal

Server setup

This is how the relay works, if you want to setup your own relay server.


socat TCP-LISTEN:6667,reuseaddr,fork OPENSSL-CONNECT:irc.oftc.net:6697


SocksPort 0
HiddenServicePort 6667 # Standard stuff
# Make things go fast, but my server non-anonymous
HiddenServiceSingleHopMode 1
HiddenServiceNonAnonymousMode 1

I would like to be able to forward end-to-end encrypted SSL connections (eg. with SASL for authentication), but I haven't figured out how to do that yet.
