mIRC information

Heya guys!

I have made us a little internet relay chat (IRC).
  • Server: QuakeNet - Random
    Channel Name: #cold.logic

If you havent used mIRC before, i'll suggest you to look on www.mirc.com for a guide.

Once you got the program running on the QuakeNet server then type the following message in the typing field:
Code:
/join #cold.logic

Might as well stick this here, this was from another thread -

If anyone is brand new to IRC, heres a quick briefing -

1. Get yourself an IRC Client
The most popular one is mIRC (http://www.mIRC.com) however there are lots to choose from (Depending on your operating system).

2. Set up your IRC Client
Good IRC Clients have the setup menu appear once you first run the program. You don't have to enter your real name or email address, however once that is done, click OK.

3. Connecting to Quakenet
You can connect to quakenet via the server browser in the settings option stated above, however the quickest way to connect (and it saves in your settings anyway) is to type -

/server irc.quakenet.org

This should then initialize the IRC Client to connect to Quakenet.

4. Authorizing on Quakenet.
Quakenet has a very good writeup on how to Authorize on Quakenet. You need to be Authorized on Quakenet to Register Channels or to be Automatically made Operator (Administrator) or Voiced (Moderator) on the channel.

The writeup is here - http://www.quakenet.org/faq/faq.php?c=1&f=51#51

Everytime you connect to IRC, you will need to Auth. You do this by typing in /msg Q@CServe.quakenet.org AUTH username password after you have connected to the Network.

Some IRC Clients have Auto-auth features (mIRC does not, however mIRC scripts, such as nnScript and Gamers.IRC do,) which can stop the tediousness of having to auth all the time. However it's advised not to use Auto-auth features (I use it. but) generally due to security issues (People posing as Q.)

5. Hiding your Hostmask
This isn't exactly vital, but it provides a level of security and secrecy. All you need to do after you have Authed, type - /mode name +ix. Your host will then become name@auth.users.quakenet.org,

6. Joining Channels
To join a channel, simply type /j #channelname. All channels begin with #. So if you were going to a channel called films, you would type /j #films. If the channel doesn't exist, or there is nobody in the channel, you create the channel and become it's temporary owner. Others can then join the channel as they would any other channel.

7. Registering Channels
Quakenet have a very good writeup on Registering channels. This is located at http://www.quakenet.org/faq/faq.php?c=3&f=112#112


I hope this helps folks wanting to use IRC, if theres any more queries i'm sure those experienced in IRC will be happy to help.
