    You can try what SitePoint uses, QuickChat. It seems pretty good.

    And then you set the channel like below.

    I think there is one called

    ApIRC

    or something like that. You might be able to get it from http://www.javaboutique.com

    linux.com used it for awhile to hook up to irc.linux.com

    see, the problem with most Java IRC clients is that they generally set to only connect to the server they load from ... (thats how quickchat's system works and webmaster.com is the same thing) ..... apirc, etc, are setup the same way .. because, if it is NOT setup like that, then people usually end up "stealing" bandwidth from each other.. i mean, if it lets you set the server to connect to in the HTML, you can modify the html and steal bandwidth for the applet ...

    however, if you could find a decent java applet whose "source code" is available, you could set it to connect to a specific server, then compile it, and put it on your machine, that will allow you to run an irc channel on a big, decent , well known network, such as undernet, ircnet, dalnet, etc, and put the java applet on your own website.

    we at geekarea.org run our channel on undernet, but then, we lost java capability , we used to be on the network quickchat was on and had a java gateway
