IRC (Or Internet Relay Chat) is something that, if you stay online long enough, you will have to fool around with.

IRC Clients

To get on IRC, you need a client. Here are a few.

ChatZilla

One of the easiest clients to use, if you use Firefox. Since its a Firefox plug-in, it should work on any operating system. If you want a simple, clean IRC client to get in and out, ChatZilla will work fine.

Installation

Follow this link [1], and Scroll down a bit until you see ChatZilla. Then just hit the big green button that says "Add to Firefox". Give it permission to install, let Firefox restart, and its installed. To use, just go to the "Tools" drop down menu in Firefox and select "ChatZilla".

mIRC

Another popular IRC client.

Connecting to Boxtorrents

Boxtorrents Uses the IRC server: irc.deltaanime.net
The main chatroom is: #boxtorrents
And the support room is: #box-support

How to connect to #boxtorrents

(This guide was made with ChatZilla in mind)

  • Start your IRC client
  • Enter the Nickname you want into the bottom left button, beside the input bar.
  • Now, to join the server. Type (or copy/paste) into the input bar:

/server irc.deltaanime.net

  • It will tell you need to register, if your nickname hasn't been used yet. To do this type (or copy/paste) into the input bar:

/msg nickserv register your password your email
Just replace "your password" with a password, and likewise for "your email".

  • The battle is done at this point! To connect to a channel, so you can talk to people, type (or copy/paste)into the input bar:

/join #boxtorrents

How to reconnect to #boxtorrents

  • Start your IRC client
  • Your Nickname should still be in your client, so leave that part alone.
  • To join the server again, type (or copy/paste)into the input bar:

/server irc.deltaanime.net

  • Instead of asking you to register this time though, it will ask for your password. To do that, just type (or copy/paste) into the input bar:

/msg NickServ IDENTIFY password
Just replace "password" with the password you gave when registering.

  • Now, you can reconnect to the chat room by typing (or copy/paste) into the input bar:

/join #boxtorrents

Connecting to different channels

To connect to another channel when first starting up, just replace #boxtorrents with the channel you want (like #box-support). If your already connected, type (or copy/paste) into the input bar:
/join #channelname
