Forum Thread: How to Chat via Terminal ?

Like Elliot from Mr.Robot has a chat over the terminal with its mates.
How can i do the same and how to protect or encrypt it?

That is an IRC chat. There are many different programs to do this, but most of them aren't terminal-based. They do have them, though. :)

The IRC client he used in the show is a popular one called BitchX. You may already have it. Try:

  • ~$> bitchx your_username irc.server.domain.name

If you don't have it, you can install it with:

  • ~$> sudo apt-get install bitchx
