Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is an application layer protocol which provides internet chat in real time. Group communication can be conducted in discussion forums called channels, but the protocol also allows for one-to-one communication via private message. Some of the popular IRC clients for Windows are mIRC, Miranda IM, Trillian, and XChat. While IRC does not specifically provide file transfer functionality, savvy users can use customized scripts for their IRC client to create file servers.
