Aletarius’s Guide to IRC Connective-ness!
Alrighty! First, you’re going to need to get yourself an IRC Client! There are a few you can get!
Mibbit (in the web browser, so no installation is necessary)
mIRC (The most popular one)
Trillian (If you use more than one messenger, this is another option)
ChatZilla (If you use FireFox as a browser, this is another choice)
I will explain how to get situated in this guide through the method of using mIRC as your client. The Commands should be the same however.
mIRC is a shareware client, you can use it for 30 days and then they ask for you to pay for it in the form of a donation. You can however, keep using it after the initial 30 days.
Step by Step Guide to connecting to our server and joining our channel!
1) Open up your client. Go over each of the options; make sure to set your name and email to whatever you want it to be. Now, what you want to do is type the following without the quotations: “/server irc.ecnet.org”
2) Now, the client will connect to the server that you told it to connect. Wait until it does, it should take a few seconds. When you have connected, to join the channel type in the following: “/join #rpg-town”. This will let you enter our channel.
3) Now you can talk and do whatever you wish to do.
