To connect to AfterNET, we suggest you use our primary server address:
This address will automatically route you to a nearby server and supports both IPv4 and IPv6 connections.
Each of our servers listens on ports 6667, 7000, and 16667. We support SSL-encrypted connections on ports 6697 and 9998.
If you're interested in linking a server to AfterNET, please visit our link application. Our current client servers are located in the United States, Canada, Japan, France, and the United Kingdom. Feel free to stop by #AfterNET or #Help and discuss your plans with us. In particular, if you're going to purchase a dedicated server or VPS for IRC, we'd be happy to suggest providers we've used in the past. We are currently interested in linking more servers that can provide native IPv6 connectivity (not via a tunnel), but you do not need to have IPv6 connectivity to apply for a testlink.
