- Regular -
Connect to server irc.chat4all.org with port numbers: 6666, 6667,
6668, 6669 or 7000.
The connection can be made from within mIRC with the following
command (include the / ):
/server irc.chat4all.org <portnumber>

We also offer a secure connection. This means the datastream will be
encrypted, and thus much more secure for prying eyes. You will
however need a SSL capable IRC client.
The secure connection must be made on port number 7001 and can be
made with the following command (include the / ):
/server irc.chat4all.org +7001
