Bip is an *IRC proxy*, which means it keeps connected to your preferred IRC servers, can store the logs for you, and even send them back to your IRC client(s) upon connection.

You may want to use bip to keep your logfiles (in a unique format and on a unique computer) whatever your client is, when you connect from multiple workstations, or when you simply want to have a playback of what was said while you were away.

Use a single bip session for multiple irc connections. Each bip user can have multiple irc networks to connect to, the connection_id identifies a connection for a user. For example if a user connects on OFTC and efnet, he would configure his client to connect to two servers, all with the same host (the one on which bip is running), and he would set a different irc password for each of the networks. ie “user:pass:OFTC” and “user:pass:efnet”.
