I logged on to AOL and then opened Uplink and opened the IRC function. I typed in the site "irc.uplink.net" and clicked "Connect." a large blank window appeared and nothing came up on it.

You much use the correct server name: irc.uplinkcorp.net .  You must also enter a nick and name.  The IRC client does not work that well and so will only run consistantly on Win XP/2000 and Linux.  :)

How does IRC work...
May I suggest you read RFC 1459?
It was updated by RFCs 2810 - 2813, though these RFCs are only really useful for the IRCNet ircd, and not any of the others, allegedly.

What the heck is RFC?
Some people talk because they have something to say. Others talk because they have to say something.

RFC stands for Request for Comment, and is the standard used to outline new protocols and technology for the Internet.  If you want the details of pretty much any network related protocol its in an RFC somewhere.  :)

Well, it's the document that defines the standard ;)
most people seem to think of it as a rulebook, whereas it is more of a guideline. Not saying that you're one of those people, stews, just making that point.

Umm, I think he meant.. how does the IRC client in Uplink work..  not how the actual protocol worked... :confused:

Yes, Deepsmeg that is an important point.  RFCs are more development documents than technical spec, as most are written before the particular protocol (or whatever) is implemented.  Infact a good few of the RFCs have nothing to do with anything, some are jokes, or bits of discussion.  :)

rfc 69 is a change of address thingy. outdating rfc 51 iirc
then you get the hyper text coffee pot control protocol was defined by rfc 2324
the Pigeon Pinging (IP over an Avion carrier) was defined in 1149, and updated by 2549, which included QoS.
2550, submitted by Compaq, addresses the issues of Y10K compliance.
etc
