miau - fully featured IRC bouncer/proxy


miau logo

miau is an IRC bouncer/proxy (bnc) written in C for POSIX platforms. It can be used to stay online even when your IRC client isn’t running, using multiple IRC clients – even at the same time, and protect your personal IP from public.



miau compiles on virtually any POSIX platform with ISO-C compliant C-compiler. There are no dependencies to third-party libraries, so it compiles on even most restricted environments. miau is known to run perfectly fine on wireless routers with just 8 megabytes of RAM.
