IRC clients are computer programs that a user can install on his or her system.
These clients communicate with chat servers to transfer messages to other clients.
Jyrki Kuoppala pushed Jarkko to ask Oulu University to free the IRC code so that it also could be run outside of Oulu, and after they finally got it released, Jyrki Kuoppala immediately installed another server. Jarkko got some friends at the Helsinki University and Tampere University to start running IRC servers when his number of users increased and other universities soon followed.
At this time Jarkko realized that the rest of the BBS features probably wouldn't fit in his program.

IRC was created by Jarkko Oikarinen in August 1988 to replace a program called MUT (Multi User Talk) on a BBS called Oulu Box at the University of Oulu in Finland, where he was working at the Department of Information Processing Science.
