Technical Info

For client configuration, read the howtos on X-Chat, Pidgin (for Linux, Mac and Windows), Irssi (Linux command line).

Since the mufhd0 network is managed together with ECN and Indivia, should the A/I servers have problems you can connect to these other servers.


If you have any problems or questions about our IRC service and/or about the possibility of linking other servers, write to:
