Internet Relay Chat (IRC)

XXX - add a brief IRC description here

History

XXX - add a brief description of IRC history

Protocol dependencies

Example traffic

XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Ethereal screenshot).

Ethereal

The IRC dissector is (fully functional, partially functional, not existing, ... whatever the current state is). Also add info of additional Ethereal features where appropriate, like special statistics of this protocol.

Preference Settings

(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how IRC is dissected).

Example capture file

XXX - Add a simple example capture file to the SampleCaptures page and link from here (see below). Keep this file short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Ethereal can open gzipped files automatically.

Display Filter

A complete list of IRC display filter fields can be found in the [http://www.ethereal.com/docs/dfref/i/irc.html display filter reference]

Capture Filter

You cannot directly filter IRC protocols while capturing. However, if you know the ["TCP"] port used (see above), you can filter on that one.
