United IRC Networks (UIN)

UIN (United IRC Networks) is an IRC network interlinker.  It allows multiple like-minded (seperate) IRC networks (which may be utilizing different IRC server software than others) to maintain a link together and share channels and users if/as desired.  United IRC Networks is powered by PyLink.                Chat Now » | Policies » | Apply for Link »


PyLink allows IRC networks to link together and share channels and users, even if they use a different IRCd sofware or IRC Services software to power their servers and networks.  This allows linked network users to have additional channels, interests, users and content that previously may not have been available to them.

Linked Networks may choose which channels they would like to share and which shared channels they would like to have on their networks.


Some users and/or administration may feel that this is merely a means of increasing user counts across linked networks and provides no real benefit.  We feel that this is completely false!  We’re excited to bring users additional choices in channels available, users available to chat with, additional interests and game chanels — and provides network administration with a means to “stay current” on IRC, abuse prevention, and IRC’s future!  Our goal is not to increase user-counts, but rather provide our users with additional means of chatting, finding friends, and additional content without having to open a bunch of server windows/tabs.


  • Compatible IRCd Software: UnrealIRCd 4+, InspIRCd 2.0, Charybdis 3.5+, Elemental-IRCd 6.6*, InspIRCd 3.0, IRCd-Hybrid 8.2*, juno-ircd 11.*, Nefarious IRCu 2.0.*.
  • Incompatible Software: IRC Defender, Freenode’s Sigyn, Any Services Package using KILLs instead of AKILLs, K-lines or G-lines (This includes any bots that might attempt to KILL users instead of handle them locally with a K/G-line.)  If the incompatible software is modified or configured to NOT use KILLs, it is compatible.  This is a MUST for all Linked Networks and should be double-checked, as the defaults are usually set to KILL which is NOT compatible!
