I registered an account with a server but I can't figure out how to pass my password on connection. (I know I can type it into mIRC options and then it works, but I need to figure out how to do it using the /server command.)

I've tried:

/server irc.afternet.org myPassword
/server irc.afternet.org 6667 myPassword

And since the help on afternet.org says to put
/myLoginID/myPassword
into the server Password field, I also tried:

/server irc.afternet.org myLoginID/myPassword
/server irc.afternet.org /myLoginID/myPassword

I do get logged in, but anonymously, without authentication.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean.

If the server requires a password for authentication, then you need to use /server irc.server.address [port] [password] (so you're doing it right in that case).

If you need to execute a command after connecting to the server (like identifying to some sort of service) then you can't do that through the /server command (though it has been suggested for a future version). You can use the Perform section or the ON CONNECT event to do this though.

Regards,

After you connect to the server, try typing the following command:

/msg X2 login [color:blue]userID password [/color]

Replace userID and password with your actual User ID and Password.

If you need more help, type /msg X2 help

When I do this, I get a "connection refused" message.

I just found out that a friend has the same problem using this command, so it would point to a problem rather on the server's end.

My problem is that I need to get authenticated on connecting to the server.

try using:
Code:
 /server irc.afternet.org  YourUsername YourPassword  

insure their's a space between the User Name and the Password.
