Thread: Setting up a Chat Client to Access our Chat Room

  1. #11
    I downloaded the X-Chat Aqua software but I have no idea what to do from there. If anyone has patience and could walk me through it, I'd appreciate it!

    I tried going into the chatroom through the link in the community section, but when I try to log in it says I have an erroneous nickname.

    You can try the link again and you might have to start your nickname with a character instead of a letter. I'm not positive, but that's the only thing I can think of that would cause the error you described. Try just using Turker74.

    Does anyone know the command line I need to type to connect to irchighway.net? I use Chatzilla (free addon for Firefox) and had to re-install it on one computer, but can't remember how I got in. There is no server dropdown to choose.

    Guide for ChatZilla

    ChatZilla is a free client for Mozilla Firefox. It can also stand alone with XULRunner. No chat alerts are available at this time AFAIK.

    Open ChatZilla.


    Press Ctrl+J and fill in the box as follows, then click Join.


    Wait for it to connect.


    You're in chat.


    To be in chat automatically in the future at start up, right click the tabs that say irc.irchighway.net and #turkernation and tell them to Open Automatically At Startup.

    To change your name, click your name to the left of the input box and hit Change nickname...

    More settings can be found in Chatzilla > Preferences...
    When the wind of change blows some build walls while others build windmills.

    Ctrl+J brings up Download Manager, not join box, must not work on Windows. Got it to work with:
    /attach irc.irchighway.net

    Once connected I was able to go to the various Startup tabs and add the joins

    I use Colliloquy, but I don't think it has alerts or scripting. I do like it, though.
    It's all good.
