How to connect to Neverendless IRC with IceChat
IceChat is a chat client that is used to connect to IRC. More information about it can be found on the IceChat website.
Step 1: Download and install
Download the IceChat client from this link and then run the icechat-setup.exe file.
Step 2: Getting set up
Once IceChat has been installed, run IceChat from the icon on the desktop. The IceChat first time set up will appear and walk you through the process of choosing a default username and server.
Once you have completed the first time setup the main IceChat window will open.
Step 3: Connecting
In the main window you should see a panel on the left side of the IceChat window titled 'Favorite Servers'. Under Favorite Servers will be a short list of default servers.
In the Favorite Servers list you should see 'irc.neverendless-wow.com' amongst the other server entries. Double click irc.neverendless-wow.com to connect to Neverendless IRC.
-Adding a server-
If, for whatever reason, irc.neverendless-wow.com does not appear in the Favorite Servers list you will need to add it.
To add a server, locate the 'Add New" button at the bottom of the Favorite Servers panel, or go to View -> Server List -> Add server.
A small screen will appear that will guide you through the process of adding a server to the list.
The screen will ask for:
- A server name. Use irc.neverendless-wow.com.
- Port number. Leave this as 6667.
- Channels to autojoin. You can leave this blank for now.
- Nickname. It will use your default nickname but you can specify a different one if you want. It is recommended you use your character name here.
- Auto preform: This is where you would put the nickserv identify command (if you have a registered nickname) so you don't need to do it manually every time you connect.
On the last page, double check your settings and then make sure you click 'Save' or you will have to go through the add server process again.
Finally, double click 'irc.neverendless-wow.com' in the Favorite Servers list to connect.
Upon connecting you will automatically join the main chat channel: #neverendless-wow. Feel free to join the conversation or just lurk for a bit. Happy chatting!
