A basic guide on how to connect to the Christian Furs IRC using HexChat
Note:This guide has been adapted from my tutorial on setting up Xchat-WDK which was the former name of HexChat

Downloads

Hexchat - For Windows.
Note: If your not sure which version to download just download the x86 version

Setup

1) Install HexChat

2) Open HexChat

3) In the menu bar at the top, go to "Hexchat" then click on "Network List..."

4) In the Network List window, enter your user information.

5) Time to add the IRC Network. Click on "Add" and type a name you want to give the IRC network. Since the network is called "Foxnet" that's what I will call it.
Note: If you don't want the network list to show up every time you open Hexchat, you can check the "Skip network list on startup box"

6) In the "Edit" window, click on "newserver/6667" and change it to "irc.foxnet.in/6667" and press enter

7) Under "Favorite Channels" type "#christianfurs" and check the box "auto connect at startup"
Note: This will allow you to connect to the Christian Furs IRC channel automatically when you start up Hexchat

Other
- Here's a guide for basic IRC commands that are good to know

Hope to see you on the IRC ^.=.^

I need to get on the IRC sometime, but I use my iTouch for 99% of posting on CF and stuff because I'm in the furry closet :P, what shoul I use for the iTouch then? And I don't want to pay for anything because I don't want to get found out xD
(secret agent fur FTW!)
