All servers support IPv4 and IPv6.

All servers support the following ports:

Plain-text: 6667
SSL: 6697

Note: Generally speaking, you want to use SSL whenever possible.  The most important advantage is that when you authenticate, your password is encrypted when sent to the server.  This also enables the possibility of secure private messages if both parties exercise due diligence.

Note: The earliest supported SSL/encryption protocol is TLS v1.0.  Your IRC client must support TLS v1.0 or later in order to connect via SSL.  Virtually all IRC clients will support this.
