This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.haiku-os.org/news/2021-05-19_haiku_is_moving_to_oftc/
Will there be channel logs available for this new network as well?
Not yet established. At least we have not yet found a service that logs any OFTC channels yet…
Does anybody have a description of how to set-up vision to connect to the new irc server?
What is that / in the server name? I think it should not be there.
I have personally tested this on 32bit Haiku and can tell you that it is working fine.
I made a similar mistake. The port for a ssecure connection is 6697, not 6667.
Oh strange, yes it is working now thx humdinger.
You can find a short guide on how to configure Vision for the OFTC network and how to register your nickname in the blog post Registering your nickname for IRC.
