It was meant to be just a test network to develop bots on but it quickly grew to a network "for friends and their friends".In Europe and Canada a separate new network was being worked on and in December the French servers connected to the Canadian ones, and in the end of the month, the French and Canadian network was connected to the US one and the network that later came to be called "The Undernet" was born.
The first IRC network was running on a single server named fi.
Jyrki Kuoppala pushed Jarkko to ask Oulu University to free the IRC code so that it also could be run outside of Oulu, and after they finally got it released, Jyrki Kuoppala immediately installed another server. Jarkko got some friends at the Helsinki University and Tampere University to start running IRC servers when his number of users increased and other universities soon followed.
IRC then grew larger and got used on the entire Finnish national network—Funet—and then connected to Nordunet, the Scandinavian branch of the Internet.
In November 1988, IRC had spread across the Internet and in the middle of 1989, there were some 40 servers worldwide.
These clients communicate with chat servers to transfer messages to other clients.
IRC was created by Jarkko Oikarinen in August 1988 to replace a program called MUT (Multi User Talk) on a BBS called Oulu Box at the University of Oulu in Finland, where he was working at the Department of Information Processing Science.

In August 1990 the first major disagreement took place in the IRC world.
The "A-net" (Anarchy net) included a server named eris.
For a long time I wanted to communicate with people in general in a non-chat format.
