How to create an IRC channel on OFTC

  1. Connect to OFTC (irc.oftc.net) with your favourite IRC client. A list of clients can be found here. IMHO x-chat ist the best choice. Windows binaries can be found here.
  2. Register your nick with /msg nickserv register . Now you are able to create your own IRC channel.
  3. Join a new channel: /join #
  4. Register channel: /chanserv register #

Here is a bunch of other useful commands:

  • Getting help for chanserv (everything related to channel administration): /chanserv help oder /chanserv help register
  • Add another channel master (new master has to be registered first): /chanserv access # add <nick> master
  • Set autoop to on (registered channel master/operators become op automatically after joining the channel): /chanserv set # autoop on
