Once you have set up one of the above IRC clients, you can connect to the server or one of the servers listed on the Servers page.

Information on IRC can be found on the What is IRC? section, and more information about the Services we run can be found here. For information on what is considered acceptable and inacceptable behaviour please visit the Charter page

Java WebChat Client

We now have a webbased Java Chat Client. This applet was coded by Typh (LordTyphon) who is a staff member here on DarkerNet.

To use this applet you must have Java version 1.3 minimum installed on your system. If the applet does not load you do not have the required Java browser plug-in. You can download this plug-in at

Once connected to the network, you can join us on several channels which you can select from the dropdown channel menu. #darkernet is the main network channel and your first port of call should you need any help.
