IRC Connection Guide

IRC is not online yet. This page will be accurate when IRC is rolled out, however as long as this banner is here, odds are this won't work.

IRC is old technology. Given this, it's increasingly likely as time goes on that you have never used IRC. Thus, you may have many questions about IRC. This article attempts to answer them.

IRC Connection Details

Hostname: irc.hullseals.space
Port: 6697
SSL: Yes
Nick Name: Your Registered CMDR Name
Username: Your Registered CMDR Name
Password: Your Seal Account Password

Please note, currently, we are unable to use "alternative" nicknames or variants of your exact CMDR name as registered with our account. While the Cybers are looking into how to do this, we ask that people stick to just one name for now.

Registration of Nicknames

At current, your nickname is the same as attached to your Seal account. Alternative names and "Registered" nickname systems are being developed.

Do I have to use SSL?

Technically, No. However, why wouldn't you?

The Seals strongly encourage connections to be made with SSL on port 6697. As such, a guide of how to connect in a less-secure mode will not be provided here. If for some reason SSL does not work for you, please contact the Cyberseals.

What are hullse.al links?

We have our own URL shortener! .al is the top-level domain of Albania. Several of these links are displayed for reference at https://hullse.al/FantasticShortlinksAndWhereTheyLead. These links can generally be trusted, but as always, think before you click.

Passwords

To reset your IRC password, reset your User Account's password.

What do the markers in IRC mean?

The markers in IRC are rather complicated, and we understand that. The symbol you will see most commonly is the + symbol, which is the icon for a "Voiced" seal. This is assigned to an authenticated user who has been drilled. If you think you should have this, and do not, doublecheck your status with NickServ. Each client may display symbols differently, but often you will see Admins, Moderators, Cyberseals, and other higher-level Seals and Staff with these icons.
