About UnrealIRCd

UnrealIRCd is an Open Source IRC Server, serving thousands of networks since 1999. It runs on Linux, OS X and Windows and is currently the most widely deployed IRCd with a market share of over 50%. UnrealIRCd is a highly advanced IRCd with a strong focus on modularity, an advanced and highly configurable configuration file. Key features include SSL, cloaking, its advanced anti-flood and anti-spam systems, swear filtering and module support. We are also particularly proud on our extensive online documentation.

How to get started

Please consult our excellent online documentation at when setting up the IRCd!

Step 1: Installation


Simply download the UnrealIRCd Windows version from

Alternatively you can compile UnrealIRCd for Windows yourself. However this is not straightforward and thus not recommended.


Do the following steps under a separate account for running UnrealIRCd, do NOT run as root.

Step 1: Compile the IRCd

  • Run ./Config
  • Run make
  • Run make install
  • Now change to the directory where you installed UnrealIRCd, e.g. cd /home/xxxx/unrealircd

Step 2: Configuration

Configuration files are stored in the conf/ folder by default (eg: /home/xxxx/unrealircd/conf)

Create a configuration file

If you are new, then you need to create your own configuration file: Copy conf/examples/example.conf to conf/ and call it unrealircd.conf. Then open it in an editor and carefully modify it using the documentation and FAQ as a guide (see below).

Step 3: Booting


Run ./unrealircd start in the directory where you installed UnrealIRCd.


Start -> All Programs -> UnrealIRCd -> UnrealIRCd
