ZNC supports character encodings in core since 1.6.0. If you want to look at earlier "charset" module, it's here.


ICU library does the actual conversion. If it's available, ./configure will find it.



ZNC internally uses UTF-8. You can configure charset used between clients and ZNC, and charset used between ZNC and server.

If one of "Try UTF-8 and ___" options is selected, when ZNC receives a line from socket (either client, or server), at first it checks whether it's valid UTF-8, or not. If it's not, the fallback charset is used to decode the line.

GUI is available in webadmin, in User page, and in IRC network page. Also controlpanel module can be used.
