TEXT CHAT HELP
 
CONNECT INFO / GET CLIENT / COMMON COMMANDS / PUBLIC CHANNELS
 
The DFM Chat Network is running on our own servers and although publicly accessible it is a private network. The environment we provide is friendly, accepting, enjoyable and that is the way we keep it. We are not going to publish a not-to-do list, if one has any common sense there shouldn't arise any problem. DFM operators will remove/ban on the spot any offender to this unwritten list with or without notice. For all others our operators will do whatever in their power to provide assistance with anything that will enhance your DFM experience, just get on the channel and ask. Have some patience if there is no immediate response, likely everyone is busy elsewhere then, but you will be noted!
 
 

Installed IRC Clients and Plug-ins will connect if you JUST CLICK HERE!

 
CONNECTING MANUALLY:
 
    1. Start up an IRC CLIENT
 
    2. Type: /server irc.dfm.nu
 
    3. Wait until server connection is made
 
    4. Type: /join #DFM
 
AUTOMATED SETTINGS:
 
    1. Start up the IRC CLIENT
 
    2. Add server: irc.dfm.nu
 
    3. Set port to: 6667
 
    4. Add channel: #DFM
 
A good simple trick, if you are using mIRC, is to copy the startup
icon and rename it to 'DFM Chat'. Now right-click it and open
the Properties. On the Target line you can add the following:
 
to connect to the server :-s irc.dfm.nu
to join the channel:-j #DFM
 
Example: "C:\Program Files\Mirc\mirc.exe" -sirc.dfm.nu -j#DFM
 
Click OK. Now you have a direct link to the DFM Chat Network.
 
This trick might also work with other IRC clients. See its
documentation and look for commandline options.
 

 
In case the main server is offline you can connect to
our secondairy server, just follow the above steps
and replace the server with: irc2.dfm.nu
