As Bouncer (short: BNC) IRC is a programm called which can mediate between an IRC Client and the IRC Server and thus works as a proxy..

However, the main goal of most Bouncer is not the pure intermediary between a client and a server, but the lasting as possible maintaining a connection to an IRC server or one or more IRC networks. As will be lost in several IRC networks after checkout privileges in channels and the nickname of each other can be used is the only way to "reserve" a nickname or channel priviledges to stay logged in practically permanently using the Bouncers. For this reason, Bouncer programs typically run on a server on the Internet. The user no longer needs to be constantly online using the Bouncers.

Why Bouncer?

Whyo to use a IRC Bouncer

Protection of the client computer from attacks , such as a DoS attack or the use of exploits. Because of the IRC server , and thus the users in the IRC view only the IP address of the Bouncer host name is known, the attacks are directed only against this In IRC occur with a different DNS name (namely, that of the Bouncer hosts) , the - results in a certain sense , for example, a funny , curious or leeten text - beyond the purely technical necessity beyond . Provider of rentable bouncers often have a large selection of such DNS Names , between which the tenant can often change at any time and usually arbitrary. The indirect establish a connection to the server when the direct connection , etc. is not possible due to a restrictive firewall. the construction of an encrypted connection to public networks (eg wireless networks ) , since many IRC networks own SSL server does not offer because of capacity constraint . The holding of DCC connections. Here, since the connection between Bouncer and client is established , a Bouncerbenutzer go offline, while his bouncer keeps the DCC connection.
