Hello:

I have just downloaded and installed mIRC and needed your help with setting up the mIRC Options.

The Categories are:

Connect
-- Options
-- Perform
-- Local Info
-- Identd
-- Firewall

IRC
-- Options
-- Highlight
-- Messages
-- Catcher
-- Logging
-- Flood

Sounds
-- Requests
-- Agents

Mouse
-- Drag Drop

DCC
-- Options
-- Folders
-- Fserve
-- Server

Display
-- Options
-- Windows
-- Tray

General
-- Servers
-- Lock

I know you will need to know some information from me so just feel free to ask.

- Thanks

Just to let you know, I have Windows XP Home Edition.

I've also tried connecting to a server and it says:
* Unable to connect (Connection timed out)

Read the help file on settings options by typing this in mIRC /help setting options

You are prolly getting that when you try to connect because you are trying to connect to a server that is no longer linked, or are using "Random _____Server" which in some cases is purposely set to not resolve correctly by the network. DALnet is one right now that the server list isnt accurate for due to massive attacks they were subjected to, you can get a list of current ones at this web page Just type /server the-server-infohere in your status window to connect.

Be sure you have filled in the connect part of options (click on "how to install" to the left here for a pic and directions. and note that under full name field you do not have to use your real name, just make something up). Each area of options has a help button, which will take you to the help file if you have questions about any option.

xp has a builtin firewall, which could be blocking mIRC

If you press "fast key" F1 while you are viewing each one of those options , you will get the specific help from the help file for each one of those cathegories. There is no better help than that smile
