A bouncer can be used in many different ways. It can protect your bot from being traced to its machine or protect your nick or just sit in the channel and idle. psyBNC for example can be used as another client in the channel to keep it.
All bouncers are distributed by source.

  • Crypting of Passwords
  • DCC sessions to bots are hold
  • Permanent connections to IRC while you are offline
