How to setup mIRC
When you first start up mIRC, you should get a interface such as the one displayed below.
Once here, fill out a Nickname for yourself, alternative nickname, for when that nickname is taken, a e-mail address and a 'full name'.
After doing so finish the wizard.
Now click the 'Servers' option from the side pane and click the 'add' button.
Enter for description: "QuickFox"
IRC Server: irc.quickfox.net
Now click okay, QuickFox should be selected.
Click the "Select" button.
Now use the side pane to go back to "Connect."
Click the "Connect button."
You should connect to the network as shown below.
Choose "Add", enter the channel of your choice that you wish to join, in our example we use #Help, tick "Join on connect" then choose "Add" on networks and select QuickFox.
A window asking you what channels (chatrooms) you would like to join, should popup.
Click Add/OK on all the dialogs until you return to the mIRC Favorites
Click "Join" and now you should be able to chat on the channel!
