To join go to this site: http://www.polarhome.com/cgi-bin/chat/irc.cgi

Get the nick you want.
Server = irc.galaxynet.org
Channel = #IWunofficial


If the server times out then try ionip.nl.galaxynet.org instead. It will take you to the same channel.

if the webclient doesn't work, you can always use a program called mIRC. It's downloadable at www.mirc.com

If you want to use your own mIRC program:

The program provided by dplax for the chat is just one of the different ways to get in the chat channel and made for easy use on an internet site. But maybe you want to use mIRC or a customized version of the program to connect to the chatchannel. You can get the newest version of mIRC at http://www.mirc.com/get.html. After installing it and running it for the first time, it will give the options popup right away. Fill your details in here, nickname and alternative need to be different from each other. Search for 'Servers' in the left category menu. Now you'll see the option to join a network and server.

IRC Network: GalaxyNet
IRC Server: GalaxyNet: Random server
After doing that either press the button 'Connect to server' or press ok and click on the little lightning icon in the top of your mIRC screen. mIRC is now connecting to the GalaxyNet server. When it's ready connecting type:
/join #ironworks

This will get you to join the channel named #ironworks, the channel created on the GalaxyNet server for people from Ironworks. If you want to make sure that you automatically join the ironworks channel every time you start up mIRC go to tools/options. Now go into options in category connect. You will then have the option to click the button called perform which will open a new pop up. In this pop up select the box 'enable perform on connect' and type /join #ironworks in the typing window. Press ok and you've got yourself a perform and IRC will automatically connect you to the right channel everytime you start the connection.

Enjoy!

DO you think it might be an idea to run it past Z, as you are using the name of the forum etc.

Yes. If you get timeouts then try signing in with the default settings, then going back a page and then joining the ironworks channel.

Connection timed out. It took more than 60 secs to log in, then it broke the whole deal off. I keep trying though.
