it allows identifying users on the other edn of tcp/ip connection,
ie when irc server recives connection it then connect to auth port of
source ip and sends port on which it received connection to identify
user which connected .
It is considered as security service as other admin can easily locate
user that does sth for example nasty and tell you who you should punish.
