Joining a channel
Joining an open channel
Joining a channel in general is pretty easy. To do so, you just need to use:
This command should work for every IRC Client.
Joining a password protected channel
Basically, this one works just as easy as joining an open channel.
/join #channelname Password
For example, to join the channel #AllyOne which has a password set, being secret, you need to use:
/join #AllyOne secret
As above, this one works for every client.
Joining a channel protected by '+i' (invite only)
For this one, you need ChanServ inside the channel and access to it so you may invite yourself to the channel. The other possibility would be someone with channel operator status (displayed with @ for mIRC) inside the channel who can invite you.
For the first possibility, you can use:
/cs #channelname invite
To use the second option, the person with channel operator status needs to use:
/invite Nickname #channelname
With 'channelname' being the respective chan and 'nickname' being your current nick on the IRC server.
