    mIRC

    Okay I donít know if this the right place to post this question, but I will try

    I would like to use another ip on mIRC, so I thought of a Proxy server, but that didnít work, so how do I do it.

    I know itís a real n00b question
    \"I hold you so that you will be whole.\"
    \"I\'m not whole. Does that mean that you
    won\'t hold me anymore?\"

    Hehe, you are correct, tres noob. Well, the way to do it is to use a proxy for IRC. They are called BNCs or bouncers. You have to find a bouncer first though, and they usually have a password. You can find some on IRC, some people are nice and are willing to share their BNC addresses. There are also channels where people trade things like BNCs and shells. Sometimes BNCs also cost money. And you must be very careful when using a BNC as the BNC you are using may be keeping a log of your activity, so it may know your nickserv password. Free BNCs you have to be even more careful about, as you have to wonder why they offer it for free. So, BNCs aren't the same as http proxies, as they use passwords, (I know some http ones do as well) so you will probably have to look around to find a free one. Or if you have a shell account you can even set up your own BNC on it. Hope this helps.

    Hmm, isnít there another way to connect to irc, I have seen those programs that run on web sites, that connect you to a server, isnít there any one you can chose what channel you would like to connect to, I only need to be connected to EFnet.

    Hope someone can help a n00b

    Well there are java applets that let you connect to irc, but they are limited in features and can be tough to use, as well as a mess to use. You could also use wingate to connect to the irc server. For more info on BNCs though, go to my IRC safety tutorial.

    Khakisrule > When you suggest that someone take a look at a specific tutorial, it's good practice to place a link to it so that they don't have to try to find it in the archives. Just a suggestion.

    Try doing a search for 'wingates' they are the same idea as a proxy, but slightly different.
    Basically you log in to a computer running the wingate software, then log in to irc from this computer. This makes IRC think you are coming from the computer with the wingate software on.

    A search on google for 'wingates' will give lots of tutorials and information.

    However, you should be awear that some IRC networks specificaly refuse connections from wingates. Also it is impossible to completely protect yourself. There will always be a way to trace you, all you are doing is making it more difficult.

    Search for IPv6. This is new Internet Protocol, IRC networks are not configurated for discover your real IP Address (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - where xxx is a number 0 <= xxx <= 255). This feature can be configured on all *nix machine, Windows NT 4.0 (Service Pack 5), Windows 2000 Server/Professional (SP 2) and Windows XP (you can install protocol with a comand).
    In this way you trasform your PC in a dual-stack machine (with IPv4 and IPv6), v6 information are encapsuled in v4 packets, by a Tunnel Broker.
    With this protocol you can join IRCNet with custom v-hosts and with security.

    Why don't you just TELNET to another computer and run:
    "BitchX <server>"?
