ULYSSIS hosts its own IRC server. (IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat, IRC on wikipedia)
IRC is a chat protocol. If you have a question, you can use IRC as a fast way to contact us. Details:
Server: irc.ulyssis.org Port: 6668 (SSL) Channel: #ulyssis
If you won't regularly use our IRC or if you just want to check it out, you can use our web IRC client instead. You can find it at webirc.ulyssis.org.
Our IRC server isn't very crowded and as you only see messages when you're connected, we advise you to run irssi in either a screen or a tmux session. Members can run screen or tmux on our shellservers, as they keep running 24/7 you can use them to keep track of your conversations. Screen and tmux are similar programs. Screen has been around for longer and is more tested, while tmux is more modern with new features and being easier to use for beginners.
Use the ssh command in your Linux or OS X terminal, or use PuTTY to connect on windows. Extensive information on how to do so can be found on Accessing shell servers over SSH.
