Connecting to IRC
Note: If you already have a Tardis account this tutorial explains the best method to connect to Tardis IRC.
IRC is an online chat protocol which Tardis uses for day-to-day communication.
Port: 6697 (TLS - tick 'use TLS/SSL' in your client)
There are a range of IRC clients most of which take some getting used to - here are some recommendations:
- Pidgin () - Does just about everything chat-wise.
- mIRC () - The most popular IRC client (free but you get messages on startup asking you to pay)
- XChat () - Windows version isn't free but a nice GUI linux chat client.
- irssi () - Console based IRC client, clean and highly configurable.
- mibbit () - Browser based chat client, try to use a real client where possible.
