Ah call me a noob, but I'm not sure how to connect. I'm using the mIRC client, but its not exactly noob friendly. What info do I put where to connect?

hi benz, the commend line to connect directly to the channel is as follows:

/server irc.p2p-irc.net j #umpc

if you type that in it should bring you to the network, and when connected should bring you to the channel.

if you need any more help, just ask :)

Is there a flash/online IRC client that I can use so I don't need to download a program?
I downloaded the HIRC client to my UX because MIRC apparently costs money, so I copy and paste the /server command you have me and get this -
** Connecting to irc.p2p-irc.net (0)
** Connection failed: Can't assign requested address
** Disconnected


lol you'd think I might be able to figure something out thats supposed to be simple, but apparently its not very noob friendly : P

im not farmiliar with that application, but by the looks of the error message you get, its a port connection, the default port for most networks is 6667, so try this....

/server irc.p2p-irc.net 6667

then wait til it connects, and type...

/j #umpc

alternatively, there is a java irc client here.....

(the above link will still require you to type "/j #umpc" once you are connected.

hope this helps.
