Yahoo! Chess client for use with FICS interfaces
This program connects to any of the free Yahoo! Chess lobbies and pretends to be a FICS server, allowing many of the free FICS interfaces to be used on Yahoo! Chess. YICS can be thought of as a protocol translator or adapter: the binary Yahoo! Games protocol goes in one end and the FICS server protocol comes out the other, and vice-versa.
YICS was tested the most with xboard, and works quite well with it. If you prefer, you can use YICS without any graphical interface just as you can telnet to FICS.
