How To Join irc.bbses.info


irc.bbses.info  is a  irc server created and operated by BBS users

You won't see any big egos,  arguing or misbehaving here.  We're all friends who share like interests.
We have a strict set of rules that we abide by; and everyone is held accountable.

You can catch us on irc.bbses.info  or if you prefer SSL, irc.bbses.info on port 6669


Step 1. Logon now via the web chat client

OR get an IRC client.

    Recommended Windows Clients:

    Recommended *nix Clients:

    Recommended Mac Clients:

*Pidgin is not recommended above any other IRC client.


Step 2. Join the IRC server.


Once you have your IRC client, use the following commands to get connected to the server:

  • /server irc.bbses.info To connect without SSL encryption.
  • /server irc.bbses.info +6699 To connect with SSL encryption.
  • /join #channel Where #channel can be any channel that is listed in the IRC Channels section below.


Step 3. Getting comfortable.


There are several basic commands that can help you customize your IRC experience:

  • /nick nickname Where nickname can be any name you'd like to go by (Cannot contain spaces or special characters).
  • /msg nickserv register password email You can register your nickname to prevent it from being used by someone other than yourself. Once you have registered, you will recieve an email asking you to verify your account (Make sure to use a valid email address).
  • /msg nickserv identify password Use this command to identify for the nick you previously registered when you return to the IRC network.

Step 4. Being secure.


irc.bbses.info has SSL on port 6669. If you are running the XChat IRC client, you must check the option "Allow invalid SSL Certificates" as irc.bbses.info uses its own certificate authority.
