Congratulations! You've decided to join our wonderful IRC community! For those who have just happened to come upon this guide, IRC is a type of chat room that we use here at ZAM. This guide is written to allow for people who have never used IRC before to easily get connected and It is currently available on Mac's and PC's. There are several software options you can use and below we will explain how to get that software and configure it.
Have Chatzilla or another client set up? Try clicking here.
After you acquire an IRC program, add a connection and give it a name, you can use ZAM. The following information should be standard for all IRC's programs.
|IRC Client Settings|
|Choose an IRC Identity|
(Not essential but improves security against people using same nickname)
|Nickserv is a server-side tool that people can claim a nickname for their own use in the IRC channels, it can be different than your username but preferable to keep it the same as your username.|
When you join our IRC, you can make the nickserv aware of your login name. You do this with the register command. You will only need to do this with your first login or whenever you change your login password.
In the box you type messages in place the text below:
Thereafter, when you connect, you just need to identify yourself. It is important for you to do this to keep others from using your registered name while in chat. Nicknames are forced, anyone who doesn't register and login is renamed to a random guest name. The goal is to make it difficult to appear to be someone else.
Place the below text in the chat bar.
Once you log in, you can join one of these channels by typing "/join " followed by the channel name:
