If you want to join PTNet's #rpg using an IRC client, simply
follow these easy steps.
Get an IRC client:
if you already have a program that enables you to use the IRC,
please proceed to step 2. Otherwise, keep reading and you'll
find out how to get one.
I advise you to get mIRC. It has a user friendly interface,
it's quite easy to use and, above all, it's free. You can get
it at www.mircx.com.
IRCle is the most famous IRC client for these machines. You can
download it from www.ircle.com.
BitchX is the usual election among the Penguin fans. It has a
text-based interface and it's a bit complicated to use for beginners,
but you'll master it with some practice. Get it at
Set the PTNet server:
we'll now tell to your IRC client which server will be used to
join PTNet. Since this varies from program to program, I would
advise you to check your client's documentation. I'll give you
a list of servers you can use to join PTNet (it is possible that
some of these servers are down... if this happens, just choose another).
- rccn.ptnet.org (recommended)
- irc.ptnet.org (recommended)
Configure the client:
a well-configured IRC client is very important. You should also
lose some time reading the program's documentation... Time lost
here can be easily recovered if you run against a problem.
in most IRC clients, you just need to type /join #rpg
