 Weechat supports two different relay protocols: ''​irc''​ and ''​weechat''​. The ''​weechat''​ protocol is easier to setup but has the disadvantage that you can only connect to it with a client that supports it (for example, //weechat// itself, //​QWeeChat//​ or //​weechat-android//​). The ''​irc''​ one is a bit longer to setup depending on how many irc networks you connect to, but it is very easy to use and you can connect to it with almost all irc clients. Choose between the two following setups the one that best suits your needs. Weechat supports two different relay protocols: ''​irc''​ and ''​weechat''​.

 Configuring //​weechat//'​s irc relay plugin turns out to be really simple and straightforward. The great advantage over //​irssi//'​s proxy plugin for //​sdf/​sdf-eu//​ users is that in //weechat// you only need one port for all your servers whereas in //irssi// you need a different port for each server. This means that you need as many open ports on the host as irc servers you connect to. Configuring //​weechat//'​s irc relay plugin turns out to be really simple and straightforward.

 You will see how your client automatically connects to the servers you have just added and how your favourite channels appear in the client. As a bonus point, weechat will send the backlog to your client. You will see how your client automatically connects to the servers you have just added and how your favourite channels appear in the client.
