I'm setting up being able to automatically log-on to an IRC server and channel. (FYI - I'm using MIRC 6.12)

To do this, I go to the channel menu page and add the channel name (#XXXXX, for example); then on the same pg I go to Add server and it displays a list of servers that I can pick from... The problem is the server that I want (eg. irc.abcde.net) is not on this long list within server.ini.

I am only interested in adding this new server to "my" server.ini file. How do I add a new server to just my server.ini file?

I went into "server.ini" and tried to add the new server info, under the [servers] section, in the same format (sequential # (n***...), etc) as the other entries, but I still couldn't see the new server in the list 'add server' list. (Perhaps I need to exit, and restart MIRC for this to take effect????)

Thanks in advance for some help on this...

You need to Add it via mIRC options, ALT+O > Connect > Servers. Click on the button 'Add'. For help with filling in those details, click on the 'Help' button.

This is going by 6.16 options, I can't remember if anything's changed, I doubt it for that section - it's always recommended you use the latest version of mIRC, yes, even if it breaks a script.

Thanks Chris, this helped solve my problem.

By working on your suggestion I found out that when I was logged on to a server/channel I could go to the Favorites menu and cllick on Add to Favorites, and then the Channel was added along with the server info automatically.

try putting this in your remote tab

on 1:START:{
/server -m irc.xxxxxx.org
/server -m irc.xxxxxxx.org
}
on 1:CONNECT: {
if ( xxxxxxxx.org isin $server ) {
mode +iwx
auth <nick> <password>
join #chan....
blah blah blah
}
if ( irc.xxxxxx.org isin $server ) {
auth <nick> <password>}


hope this helps to laugh
