Usage: SERVER <name of server>|<number in server_list> [<port>]]
SERVER <name of server>[:<port>[:<password>[:<nickname>]]]
SERVER -SSL <args as above>
SERVER -DELETE <number in server_list>
If server name starts with an exclamation mark (!) a SSL connection
Switches your primary server to the server specified at the
specified port number. If no port number is given, the default
port number is used. Your channel and AWAY status will remain
unchanged. Occasionally, you can switch servers faster than the
irc network can send out the information that you have left a
server. So don't be surprised if it says your nickname is in
use... just wait a moment and set it with NICK. ScrollZ
maintains an internal list of servers you have connected to.
To see that list, use SERVER with no arguments. You may also
specify one of the servers in the server list by its number in
the list, by issuing:
SERVER <number in list>
Likewise, you can automatically switch to the next or previous
server in the server list by doing:
to switch to the next and previous server in the list,
respectively. The second form allows you to specify a port,
a password and a nickname to be used for this IRC connection.
Also, you can set a particular server to be associated with a
particular ScrollZ window. To do this, set the current window to the
window you wish to use and do:
In this case, servername may again be a name, IP address, or number
of a server in your server list.
This will connect you to the given server as a secondary server in
that window. Doing a /SERVER with no parameters will show you your
primary server. If you kill the last window associated with a
server, the connection to that server will close. If you kill the
last window associated with your primary server, a new open server
will be chosen as the primary server. If there are open servers you
will not be allowed to close the connection to your primary server.
When you create new windows, they will use as their associated
server whatever was the server for the current window when the new
window was created. You can therefore have more than one window for
any server, but still only one primary server.
Every time you switch to a new server, it gets
added to the server list automatically. To set up initial
servers in the server list, you can specify them on the command
line as such:
irc <nickname> server1 server2 server3
Each host may have it's own port number, password and nickname
specified on the command line as well:
irc <nickname> server1:6667 server2:7000:blah server3::foo
In this case, server1 will use port 6667, server2 will use port
7000 with password blah, and server3 will use the default port
number with password foo. The -p switch on the command line
allows you to specify the default port number. Also, if no
password is specified and one is needed to connect, you will be
prompted to enter a password before you can connect. You can
also specify the default server list in the IRCSERVER
environment variable using the same format as above.
-SSL <normal arguments>
Make this a SSL connection.
-DELETE <number in servers list>
Allows you to remove servers from the internal server list.
