|#uk_railway Homepage: Connecting||
First you will need an IRC client. We recommend you use mIRC, available from http://www.mirc.co.uk. If you do not wish to download an IRC client, you may chat direct from here, but we do recommend you use mIRC.
If you have already installed mIRC, you need to set it up for connection to our server. This can be done as follows.
1) Load mIRC, and the options box should come up, with connect already highlighted. You are then asked to select a server to connect to. Click the ADD button, and the following box appears:
You should then fill out the box as shown here. You need not specify a password. When you are done, you click ADD.
2) You should now be back to the connect box:
Select the #uk_railway server you have just added from the drop down menu, an
fill in your details. If you don't wish to put your email address, don't, but make sure
you type something in the box, and it must have an @ in it.
The choose your nickname. This is the name others see when you say something.
When you are ready, click the 'CONNECT TO IRC SERVER' button.
3) Once the client has connected to the server, you need to type /join #uk_railway. You can then start chatting.
